"The good news for Zune owners is AV cables are similar enough to the a standard camcorder cable as well as the iPod video where as swapping cables will give you the correct connections. Check out the chart below to see what cables will work for each device. The key to swapping connections is the ground. If the ground is the same no major modifications to the cable are needed, simply swapping the cable colors will do the trick."
Interested in making your own spare Zune A/V cable? Well, apparently it's not as hard as one would think! The above schematic shows just how to wire yourself a new cable. Or, if you prefer, to buy a cable that will work for much cheaper. Bear in mind that using a cable that you wire yourself or even a cable not intended for the Zune will undoubtedly void your warranty, should explosive results ensue. So you didn't hear it from us! ;-)
