i need the front button layout of a Regent HT-391 HTS? Answered

My cousin gave me one of these but the front clip broke off and apparently got thrown away, the two plugs for the front buttons have labels as to what they are but there are only 5 buttons and one remote (the thing that picks up a remote, i cant think of the name of it right now). but there are 9 plugs listed in this order GND DOWN UP SOUND INPUT ST-BY(standby) +5V REM MGND the other port is for the LED's, i have no interest in hooking those up. all i need to know is how to hook up these wires to use them. if someone has one of these and wouldn't mind popping the front off and taking a picture of the wires or board if there is one. i should be able to put it together using just that depending on the quality of the picture and if they are what im needing. FYI dont post on here just go buy a new system, i have a pioneer 5.1 1k watt HTS. im fixing this box so i can use it outside when im working on stuff here's a pic of the front of the thing, i just need a picture of the other side unfortunately.

Ardunio- Educate Me!

Seeing all the wonderful winners that made stuff out of ardunio and other stuff, I figure that I might want to try doing some stuff using them too. Problem is, I have absolutely no idea how parts work, and I would love to have anyone who's willing point me to places that I might be able to learn the basics of circuit boards, wires, leds, motors, soft/hardware, whatever that's simple to read and learn off of. I know there's tons of Instructables that probably might teach me stuff, but I want to have a general idea first before working. Thanks, username252 (profile image below)
