Solder a separate lead to every hot post and one to every ground on the jacks. take all the grounds from each set of input jacks and solder the ends together into two separate bundles (see picture)

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

the inside of a composite cable has two sets of "wires" (actually a lot of wires to carry one signal) which part of the wire is the ground?
He is using the orange for the ground. My question is, are you using a high isolation switch to keep the bleed over down if multiple sources are powered at one time?
