Hi,

I bought this switch, http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...SS:US:1123, for $400.

I have not hooked it up yet. I need to send analog audio to one room. On the back it has connectors labeled L+L-R+R-. It looks like speaker connections.

My question is what kind of wire am I supposed to connect to the switch so I can have right and left RCA's on the other side to go to the TV?

Thanks
RCA plugs are made up of two wires - a positive and negative. So the easiest thing might be to get some regular RCA cords and cut the RCA plugs off one end. Then you'll have the two wires for each RCA plug. Plug the ends into the phoenix plugs on the switcher and you should get everything to work. The outer sheath is usually - and the inner core is usually +.
I bought some mini coax cable a while back frome Hometech in Cupertino and then just bought RCAs for one end and BNCs for the other end. The nice thing was no soldering required and I made a cable in a matter of minutes. Smile

But the autopatch side does not have a connector like a BNC or RCA the connector it has takes bare wire, like the speaker connections on the back of a receiver.

Ooh you are talking about the audio cables.
