Is it bad to remove the 4 metal tab parts of each audio wire? I bent and took it right off so it could fit into a female splitter because I don’t have a female RCA plug in. I’m using an xbox 360 AVG HD AV cable to play on a monitor. My old xbox got the red rings, and I don’t know if it’s because I tampered with the cable. Can tampering with any wiring cause red rings?
