We are very excited to formally announce the Carby Component Cable (CCC), a component video cable for the GameCube designed to provide a premium quality alternative to the OEM cable at a fraction of the cost.
The development of the CCC is the result of an ongoing and synergistic collaboration between Insurrection Industries and HDMy Cube, and we both want to extend a huge thank you to Ingo Korb, the creator of the GCvideo project, who assisted us on multiple occasions to get the best analog video possible. We couldn’t be happier with the result!
Cost is $89.50 with free domestic shipping in the continental US

FAQWill this come with a remote control or allow access to the GCvideo menu?
Our component cables are designed to function like the original GameCube component cable and output the native resolution of the GameCube, including 480p for compatible consoles and games. It does not come with a remote, and a remote is not required. However, if you would like to access the menu in order to enable features such as de-interlacing of 480i content, you can simply follow a few simple steps to program the device to work with a remote you already have (the device can be trained to most remote controls).
Check back here at 8pm (EST) Thursday Sept. 5th to pre-order your CCC
