    I want to build a simple cable that will mute the speakers on my computer
    when i plug in headphones. I guess i can do it with a 3.5mm plug and a
    coule of 3.5mm sockets.

    I need some way of connecting them so that one output loses its connection
    when the other is connected.

    I tried google but didnt find anything usefull. If anyone could point me in
    the direction of a circuit diagram and also somewhere good to buy the parts
    in the UK it would be really appreciated.

    Thanks

    Chris

    This just tries to send an e-mail to that address, I'm sure that was not
    what you intended. was it a link to a news post? If yes can I have the
    subject and date so I can try to find it on Google.

    Thanks again

    Chris

    CPC carry two 3.5mm switched jack sockets.

    Order code CN00651 panel mount
    Order code CN00652 p.c.b mount

    Use one of those wired so that the signals a.e connected to the
    'speakers when no plug is inserted.

    Inserting the 'phones plug will disconnect the 'speakers.

    Well like Chris said it just starts a new email to that address.
    Could you please explain how it links to whatever.

    Go to the news group alt.binaries.schematics.electronic

    John has posted your schematic there...

    It was not really MY circuit, it was for the OP, Chris.
    Yes it is at ABSE but still I do not know what the link John posted
    means and if Chris had to ask in the first place, he is likely a novice
    and more confused than me.

    I could draw the cct with my eyes closed so don't really need it, was
    just interested where the link led or did not lead too.

    It looks like a screw up from J.F.'s post. It should be no big deal for the
    OP to go
    to ABSE and find it, if it is...I'm hiding now!

    I think the problem is that the link needs to have added to the
    front. If you dont then the news reader just thinks it is a mailto:\\ link.

    I wouldn't say i was a novice (at usenet, i think my question prooves i am
    at electronics!!) it just had me a bit confused. Anyway off to check google
    archives as our news server here at work doesnt carry binary groups and we
    cant access anythin else!

    Thanks every one for your help.

    Yup!

    I'm using Agent and what I did was cut and paste the message ID from
    the header, after I posted to and read it back from abse, into the
    post on seb.

    Clicking on the raw message ID in Agent opens a dialogue box where one
    of the choices is something like "Message ID?", and clicking on that
    gets the message it points to. I guess Outlook Express or ??? handles
    it differently.

    This seems to work without going through the dialogue box:

    news://

    No problem. I'm going home now anyway so I'll get it from there.

    If I get stuck I'll post back.

    Cheers
