Sent: Tuesday, February 12, 2002 23:46:32 From: firstname.lastname@example.org (Brian Maxwell) My Autostar 494 cable pulled out of the 8 pin jack that plugs into my ETX-60AT. I happened to have an RJ-45 modular jack in my ethernet kit. I clipped the exposed ends off the 8 wires coming out of the coiled cable of the Autostar. Then I pushed each wire into the connectors inside the RJ-45 jack. I was not sure of the order, and could not find pinouts at Meade, Weasner's or anywhere else. Trusting luck on how the wires seemed to be lined up was successful. Looking down into the RJ-45 (contactors on top) from the rear where the cable goes in, the order from left to right is: Grey Orange Black Red Green Yellow Blue Brown Maybe this will help another poor soul whose jack gets separated from the cord. I could not even find anyone who sells just a 494 Autostar, so no telling how much time and money this saved me. Appreciate your site, Mike. Regards, Brian Maxwell
