HELP: component cable colours don't match
i have a set of male component connectors with audio cables
and a set of female component connectors with audio cables

but the colours are different on the male side i have ( red / yellow / blue / green / black ) in that order with no separation for audio cables (cable is HDMI to Component from Hong Kong)

on the female is the normal R/G/B and the red and white for audio clearly separate from the video cables

but i don't know which one goes in which

ps: i would just keep tying them in different orders but i currently dont have a hdmi output to test it on as my ps3 got YLOD yesterday and im waiting for a new one

+ i am now starting to think that maybe the male connectors are RGB + composite + single black audio
and as this cable is the cause of my confusion here is the description from the website

These cables don't have HDMI to Component video converters built in so I am afraid it won't work unless the device you are connecting it to has the ability to output component video on a HDMI connector.
