    does anyone know the correct name or number of this connection?
    http://www.zen73857.zen.co.uk/canon/hdsocket.jpg
    It's on the end of a HD component cable DTC-100/S - I got it with my
    Canon camera.
    And even better if anyone knows of a cable that will convert it to
    red/blue/green phonos...
    Thanks for any help.

    The connector looks like the 'mini centronics' type.

    thanks but is that the correct name for it or is 'mini centronics' a
    general term covering several connector types?

    Probably like a SCSI II type. Try calling RAM Electronics.

    www.google.com, select images and type in "mini centronics" and have a
    look.

    yeah mini centronics seems to cover a whole range of different
    connectors so I'm non the wiser...

    It doesn't. However I don't know a manufacturer.

    if I type 'mini centronics' into google it brings up a whole range of
    connectors, all different and all called mini centronics.

    No it doesn't. You're getting confused / looking at the wrong thing.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centronics_connector

    Amphenol originated the original full size 'Centronics connnector' that was the
    classic printer connector.

    The 'mini Centronics is also known as 'half pitch centronics'
    http://www.connectworld.net/connectors.html

    Another name for the connector you want seems to be MDR14.

    okay and thanks for the links, I saw the 'half pitch centronics'
    connector and I think I'm getting the jist. The plug on the MDR14
    looks like exactly the same plug as mine, so that's something.
    Unfortunately for me I need the opposite gender connection so it will
    fit my plug at:
    http://www.zen73857.zen.co.uk/canon/hdsocket.jpg
    Either that or an adaptor to make the two (same) genders meet. Thanks
    to your help so far, I'm making some progress.

    I believe this would be:

    www.digikey.com part #T1501A-ND
    http://www.norcomp.net/ Norcomp part #110-014-103L001
    Datasheet: http://www.norcomp.net/RoHS pdfs/110-YYY-103L001Rev2.pdf

    It is listed as a male centronics backshell kit.

    JW thanks so much for your help, I think you've cracked it.
    I went to www.digikey.com and managed to get hold of a technician on
    live chat and established that the female connector for my plug is a
    110-014-203L001, digit key number T1507A-ND. I even tracked down a
    picture:
    http://rocky.digikey.com/WebLib/Norcomp/Web Photos/110-014-203L001.jpg
    I ordered a couple of connectors and I'll have to make my own break
    out cable to red/blue/green phonos but hey it's better that nothing.
    Next thing I have to do is to track down the pin configuration of my
    14pin plug so I know which pins carry the video ha ha. What a polava.
    Thanks again for your help.

    I'd check those dimensions if I were you.

    I suspect it's the full size Centronics type.

    I think I've finally found it:
    the plug on the end of my HD component cable is a DX30AM-14P.
    http://rocky.digikey.com/WebLib/Hirose/Web Photos/DX30AM-14P.jpg
    and the female for it is a DX20M-14S
    http://rocky.digikey.com/WebLib/Hirose/Web Photo/DX20M-14S.jpg
    that comes with a shroud DX30M-14-CV
    http://rocky.digikey.com/WebLib/Hirose/Web Photos/DX30M-14-CV(10).jpg

    but first I have to dry my tears over my previous mistake order.
    that digikey site is really something else though. The online live
    help is exellent.

    Yes I do believe that's it.

    Why didn't I think of Hirose myself ?
