I am looking to buy an RGB to scart cable for my FS-A1WSX.
I can only find RGB cables that work on other panasonic MSX computers with a different pinout from the FS-A1WSX.

afaik the pinout is the same for all panasonic msx 2+ and turbo-r (I can even use that same cable for my sony msx2)
I have a cable I'm not using anymore

The cable is different, but a regular sony/panasonic compatible rgb cable can be used. I found out about the different pinout way later than I tested it.

How could it be? Did your monitor use the CVBS from it instead of RGB if you use the wrong cable? (just curious, how it worked if the cables are different)

I'll have to check that. I only have the default RGB cables, so no mix up there. Tested on a CRT screen, so not sure about RGB or CVBS. Thanks for mentioning it, I wasn't aware Smile

I am using a cable I found on Ebay:

RGB cable

Takes a while to arrive from Greece but works great (tested on Sony HB700, Panasonic WX/WSX + ST)

Probably the same cable as mine. Since Pencioner's post I'm not confinced the signal on the wsx is still RGB... Still haven't taken a look at it either.

I bought one from Spain via some local spanish forum a while ago (communicated for international shipping) and it is best of three - good quality connectors and cable, long and robust. Second one i soldered myself, and third one i got i bought on ebay - the same one you gave a link. Work good with Wavy 70FD, A1WX and YIS503III - all three have the same pinout used on MSX2/MSX2+ Japanese computers. I'm not sure that Turbo-R has different pinout - and i can't find any info which proves that RGB signals on Panasonic GT/ST should be different than other Japanese models. So now i think they have same pinout Smile

Before I start measuring the cable. Is this how CVBS can look on a CRT screen?

This is my FS-A1WSX outputting on a CRT screen using the cable I normally use for turbo R, FS-A1WX, HB-F1XDJ and HB-F1XV

Would be good to have the same multimente screenshot from some Sony of yours Smile But at first glance it looks like a normal RGB output (afaik CVBS in later computers was very low quality, and i can confirm that at least from Wavy the image is rather not sharp from composite)
