Spectrum RGB DIN to SCART Pinouts

After looking on the internet there seems to be a lot of confusing information on the pinouts for building a DIN to SCART cable. I’ve looked through the harlequin schematic and SCART pinouts and it should be as follows:

Spectrum Harlequin RGB DIN to SCART
DIN  ———–> SCART PIN – SCART Function
Pin 1 ———–> pin 5, 9, 13, 17 Ground
Pin 2 ———–> pin 8 — Switching (need +5V to +8V for on @ 16:9 or +9.5V to +12V for on @ 4:3)
Pin 3 ———–> pin 16 — Blanking (need +1V to +3V to select RGB mode)
Pin 4 ———–> pin 11 — Green video
Pin 5 ———–> pin 2 (Right), pin 6 (Left) audio
Pin 6 ———–> pin 15 — Red video
Pin 7 ———–> pin 7 — Blue video
