Are you sure you didn't get the wires mixed up? I believe the center pin goes to your video source, and the outside ring goes to ground. Try switching the wires around, in case you did have them backwards.

Center pin of what? Outside ring of what? Which wires do you think I may have reversed?

I soldered the center wires to the video out. There is a sheath that surrounds those center wires and then a bunch of other wires that surrounds that. I didnt connect those wires to anything, but youre saying those wires should be connected to ground? I'll give that a try but shouldn't I have gotten some sort of signal even without connecting ground?
