Help with 7 pin mini-din pinout, please!

Hi!

I have a Inspiron 6400 and I'm interested in getting the component signal that is shown herebut it's impossible to buy the adapter from Spain. Therefore I'd like to know the pinout to get the component signal. I've found this 

<ADMIN NOTE: Broken link has been removed from this post by Dell>

but it doesn't say anything about component video signal.

 

Could you help me please? Thanks!

Measurements on the S-video to component adapter supplied by DELL for my Inspiron 1520 reveal the following:

 

1  GND

2  GND

3  Y

4  Pr

5  GND

6  Pb

7  S/PDIF (digital audio data)

 

I hope this is what you need. Please let me know if you need more information.

Although I have shown pin-7 as having no connection it will deliver S/PDIF digital audio data.

 

I have assumed that the pin numbers assigned in the DELL manual to the nonstandard 7-pin mini-DIN socket relate to a view from outside the computer.
