    Hi guys, I'm making up a RCA to 3.5 stereo jack lead, this must be easy be I can't find the info any where, of the inputs Left +/- and Right +/-, what do I solder to which pin in the 3.5 jack?

    I know this is a dump question but I can't find the answer anywhere and a search here ain't revealed much.

    Cheers
    Mike

    The tip is the left, the ring is right and both grounds are connected to the sleeve. Hence TRS connectors (Tip, Ring, Sleeve). A good rule of thumb is that R is right, the ring for TRS connectors and red for when you have 2 different connectors. :)
