Name that late-'60s programming language or data representation format!

Yesterday I picked up a piece of ceramic bric-à-brac promoting RCA's Electronic Data Processing division (active mid-1950s to 1971). It features ten different ways to represent data or algorithms, of which I recognize many, but not all. Can you name the rest? Bonus: Can you decode the ones with actual data? [more inside]

How to run 20 feet of 3.5mm to RCA cabling?

What's the cheapest/simplest way for me to run sound from my iPod/laptop (3.5mm jack) to a stereo (RCA) about 20 feet away? If it were a shorter distance I'd just get a standard audio cable, but I'm worried that something like this will lose a lot of signal/fidelity. [more inside]

Is splitting HDMI out into HDMI video + RCA audio possible?

Hi hive mind, hope you're well. Here's hoping one or more of you might be able to help me out with an A/V setup question. I've been (slowly) building a fairly decent setup piece-by-piece around an Optoma projector. Trouble is, I now have an issue splitting an HDMI combined A/V signal into HDMI video + RCA audio. A little help here, please! [more inside]

Are RCA cables and Component cables the same?

Can one use RCA cables (red/white/yellow) in component jacks (red/blue/green)? I understand that the jacks carry much different data/signal/whatever, but I was told that there is no need to buy (very) pricey component cables...you can actually just hook up good quality red/white/yellow RCA cables to the component jacks for the same purpose.

connecting VCR to LCD monitor

Trying to use a 17 LCD monitor as TV with my VCR. Where can I get something, hopefully not too expensive, to connect the RCA composite output to the VGA input of the monitor. Not sure if i need to find a converter box or some adapter cables exist to do the job. Did not find much useful info by googling.

Making a gameplay video

I've got to take some short sequences of gameplay off of the outputs of a gamecube, an old nintendo, and a SuperNES, and produce a CD with the video on it. Since all of the machines have RCA out, it seems pretty straight forward, right? What equipment will I need, and are there any pitfalls I should be aware of?
