I purchased a Naim HiLine DIN > 2xRCA interconnect.
The previous owner used the cable to connect a Naim CD Player (DIN Output) to a non-Naim preamplifier (2xRCA input).
I thought I could use this cable to connect my Naim NAC282 preamplifier (DIN Tape Output) to my non-Naim headphone amplifier (2xRCA input), but I am not getting a signal.
Am I doing something wrong? or did I purchase the wrong cable.

There are two versions of DIN OUT.
TAPE OUT and A/V out requires a cable where the connections in the DIN plug are wired at 270 degree vs 180 degrees (I think that’s correct). I bought one from Israel but you can have Chord Company make one for you.
A friend just had Chord make him a Shawline cable that works with Tape Out.
Contact a Naim dealer that sells Chord Company products.
Yes it’s wired differently. The cable you have has the DIN plug wired to the ch1 & 2 in pins. It would work if you were connecting your NDX2 to a headphone amp.
You’ll need one that is wired to the ch1 & 2 out pins to use the Tape output from your NAC282. As Leatherneck says, your dealer should be able to provide a suitable cable.
As James correctly points out, the REC pins are different to the PLAY pins on the DIN.

Note that any Headline will require a suitable power supply to operate, ei…
