    The construction of the SNES Mini differs from the larger first gen. SNES. The controller port on the SNES Mini is part of the main board, the pins that connect with the controller cables are soldered directly to the main board, there are no ribbons or wires that can be disconnected to isolate the controller ports.

    ———————————————————————————
    With this in mind, please note that if you plan to wire a ControlBlock to a second Gen. SNES (SNES Mini), the controller ports will need to be “completely” separated from the SNES board. Controller wires from the ControlBlock must be connected to an SNES mini controller port that is isolated from the SNES main board.
