The component video cable provides component video signals from GameCube to your modern TV. The component video signals can display a more precise picture than composite cable or stereo AV cable. There are two ways to check the compatibility of component video cable with the Nintendo GameCube console. First, look on the back of your console, right next to the port labelled as analogue AV out; you will see GameCube digital AV out cable labelling on the second port. If you find out this, it means your GameCube console is compatible with the component video cable. However, if you don’t see the digital AV out, your GameCube console is incompatible with a component video cable.
The second way to check if your GameCube console is compatible with the component video cable, look at the bottom of the giant sticker. At the top left corner, you will see a serial number DOL-001. If you find out this serial number, it means your GameCube is compatible. However, your GameCube is not compatible with the component video cable if the serial number reads DOL-101.
