this is a pretty simple project that my friend Shawn and I built for fun. Its a good way to practice your soldering skills.
Disclaimer. this is a home built project and as such should be attempted at your own risk. i seriously doubt you can cause much damage to your TV or anything if you do it wrong, but just be wary and make sure not to bridge any wires, and to solder everything well.
Step 1: Parts/tools List
3 yellow composite video jacks
3 red composite audio jacks
3 white composite audio jacks
a switch like the one in the diagram below here's a link to the part i used for sale
a project box
a lot of wire
next you'll need tools,
hot glue gun
Step 2: Prepare the Project Box
the hole for the switch is a little more tricky. I marked out a rectangle, and drilled the corners and as much of the inside of the rectangle as possible than cleaned everything up with the knife. I made the hole smaller than the rocker on the switch, and removed to put it in and replaced it once it was in place.
Step 3: Solder Everythign Up.
take all the leads and solder them to their respective spots on the switch (see diagram)
Basically I made a quick diagram and added some notes. if theirs any confusion just write a comment.
IMPORTANT!!!! you must use flux when you solder. it helps the solder bind to the metal. your solders will break if you don't
Step 4: Putting Everything Togather.
Step 5: Test
Step 6: Done!
