Have you tried simply pushing it harder into the DC? I've been using a cheap SCART cable from eBay (the cheapest I could find lol), and I noticed that it needs to be pushed harder into the Dreamcast to work. The connector is a bit stiff and one of the colors would be missing in the picture until I added some extra pressure. Maybe you have something similar?
Another possibility is that your TV needs +5V on pin 8. Also check if all the grounds are present and the resistor is between the correct pins. Basically compare the pinouts between the cables and see what's different, and from there you might be able to figure out what's missing in the new cable.
