I would like to add that not all camcorder A/V cables heve the same pinout, it depends from manufacturer to manufacturer. A Panasonic camcorder and a Sony have totally different pinouts.
A Sony compatible A/V cable will look the same as a Panasonic cable, but when you take a look at the pinout they are totally different cables.
So not all cables will work according the article, maybe "some additional playing arround with the RCA colors" will do the trick...
