Here's what I got, a Panasonic docking system without aux in. I want to use an AirPort Express and turn it into a AirPlay-enabled speaker, so I need a cable that has a female 30-pin connector at one end, and 3.5mm jack at another.
I did do some research on the Internet, I see people selling those, BUT, since I live in Taiwan, I can't get one. I'm wondering if I can buy two cables:
- a 30-pin connector extender cable that has a female 30 pin connector at one end that I'll need to attach to the male dock 30 pin connector
- a male to male headphone cable
If I knew the pin out for the 30 pin protocol, I might be able to cut and splice the two together.
What I'm needing to try this experiment is to know what the pin out is for a 30 pin connector and if I can simply wire the audio out from the AirPort Express into a female 30 pin connector by simply splicing wires. (or to hear from someone that knows that I would need to have some other resistor or voltage present to tell the dock that it's getting an stereo input from "my iPhone" which is really the cable to the express.
