    Pin 5 is ground the "sleeve" on the stereo jack.

    Pin 2 is "Tip" on the stereo jack

    Pin 3 is the center ring on the stereo jack.

    Are you asking about a s-link cable to allow your Sony Tivo to control other Sony equipment? If so, every Sony component I have ever bought had one in it. If you need to make a long one, there are only 2 ways it could be wired, so try to make it straight-through (tip to tip, ring to ring) and if that doesn't work, do it flipped (tip1 to ring 2, tip2 to ring1)...

    If you are just looking to make a serial cable to hook your Tivo to your PC, then follow T_RJ's instructions above...

    thanks

    I am trying to make a slink cable, not a tivo serial cable. Thanks for the advice. I didn't receive a slink cable with my Sony vcr or Sony T60. I would like to be able to use this option.

    Thanks

    I believe I have the slink cable and all it is a cable with 2 stereo mini plugs, one at each end. I haven't tried to use it since I don't have the Sony vcr anymore.

    Also I'm not sure you can use the slink since the menu instructions refer to an ir emitter.
