You rock.

I had a 3 ring jack some wire and a 1/8" plug on a bench and for the life of me I could not figure the pinout. Pissed me off but good.

The 1k resistor makes sense and explains the trouble I was having trying to mate stereo headphones to my Motorola v710.

If I backed a 2 ringer (stereo jack) out of the plug, voila! stereo, but it does not stay there as you might figure. So I was sure I could simply wire it up but no....

And the case on the plug is'nt ground!!! WTF is that!!??
