    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
