    Hello everyone!

    Guys, next week I want to start developing an interesting project that involves the generation of a composite video signal by a PIC mic, but I have a ridiculously simple question and cannot find the answer anywhere.

    In a RCA cable, there are two conductors, the center (inner) conductor and the outer one.

    But which connector is ground and which connector is the actual signal? I could try this by myself but I fear messing up my whole TV set by reversing the polarity.

    Thanks!
    Miguel
