D4 video connector = AAUI connector / FriendlyNet ?[edit]

Hi, I just noticed your change to the D4 article, do you have a source verifying that connectors are the same - they certainly look similar in photographs but I couldn't find any web sources saying they used the same connector. Let me know - thanks. Megapixie 00:40, 22 June 2006 (UTC)

I have no sources. I've looked at both though. They're the same. They even use the same teeth-style clamping system. I could scrounge up a close-up of both connectors (separately) if you'd like. I could get the FriendlyNet one easily, the other one will take a couple days.
You're right, I should have called it an AAUI connector. I forgot about that name. With the proper name on there, the article can even be cross-linked. Maybe I should link the D4 connector picture into the AAUI article.
I don't understand Wikipedia's obsession with verifying sources now. I and a couple others put some great info in the NeGcon article. We couldn't have done any of that verifiably because it's not like anyone ever took enough interest in the NeGcon to write up an encyclopedic record of it before.
Anyway, I think this information is verifiable in and of itself. Anyone can look at these two things and see they are the same. You did it yourself. Maybe you're the verifying source.--Bollinger 15:38, 22 June 2006 (UTC)
WP:Verifiability is a fairly important principle - it means that other people can confirm what we have written. Without it you could assert anything - I am Elvis, etc. I agree they definately look very very very similar - but do they actually fit together ? If you could actually test that - I'd accept that.

I'm not going to grab my AAUI transceiver and drive up to San Francisco (where the Japanese HDTV I saw is now) because someone on the net said so. You wanted useful info, I gave it. If you don't believe it, then I recommend you correct it to what you believe to be true or just plain remove it.

I believe my own eyes. I've seen both connectors, they are identical. It's plenty verifiable. If anyone decides to verify it, they will found out the same thing I did. I am somewhat insulted you compare what I posted to someone asserting that they are a dead celebrity.


Thank you for correcting the burning issue. This particular article has a lot of good material in it but was throughout excessively verbose and rambley, I think it would say the same thing much better using about half the words. The goal was to heavily cut the words without cutting the meaning but in this case I guess I did cut some meaning, better under cooked than over cooked though. The burning section as it stood was pretty hard to follow unless you already knew the subject. Ex nihil (talk) 11:25, 5 March 2010 (UTC)
