I'm not sure but I could make you one if you need it. I think a 5 pin DIN will suffice and will actually plug into the jack. I'll have to have a look at the tech manual to be sure. Shouldn't cost more than $3 or so to build you one.

Does anyone make those cables for the 7-pin DIN connector to composite video & sound?  I don't know jack squat about putting wires together.

If your Adam is expansion module 3 which converts a colecovision into an adam, then it only offers RF output to channel 3 or 4 via the colecovision, but you can add a composite (or other) video mod. If it is the stand alone adam system then it has both the rf output and a single composite video output (without audio). There is also a 7-pin DIN connector that has both video and audio on it and you can wire up a cable to get composite video and sound from this connector.
