I have been longing online for quite a well for the pinout of an RCA socket, but I can't seem to find the exact pinout. It only has two pins, a center one, and one right in front of the center pin. Looks like this, one website said that one of the pins is ground, which left me sort of confused. What is the exact pinout of the this component?
Figure 1. The near pin is obviously connected to the outer ring of the socket. This forms a shield for the signal pin going through the centre to the pin at the rear of the socket. Figure 2. The plug showing the signal pin (centre) and the shield / ground (outer).
Connect ground to the shield pin (the near one in the photo).
