Where exactly do I put the 10K resistor? Although with my relay switching implementation I assume I dont need it?

Also make sure that since you are using the voltage divider you terminate the SPDIF-4 input you are using for that signal at 75R just like the other consumer level inputs.
I'll check the signal, I am using a 75R.

Thanks for the help

One way to do this is to tap the ribbon cable. Another way is to solder to the pins at the bottom of the pin header

I'm not sure exactly what you mean but let me go & ponder, it is early & the brain is still hazy

The lock on the Spdif is rock solid

There is also a Tinkerkit relay module you cannot see.

I am also switching my 2 amps & the BIII, all sequenced to avoid those awful noises, although I'll have to say the ASP's & BIII dont make really bad noises when switched off before amps, the MiniDSP I was using for the crossover made TERRIBLE noises come through the speakers if you got out of sequence. I remember one day accidentally switching off the MiniDSP first, the noise scared me SO MUCH, while my finger was still on the switch I switched it twice more, needed a good lay down after that

I imagine I may need help with the volume display as I'm not sure howI am going to make it work without removing the firmware chip.

Thanks again.
Right, now I remember that you where switching amps, BIII and cross-over in a certain sequence.

Displaying the correct volume is not that difficult, but I suggest taking this topic back to the TPA support forum.

Finally finished developing my 2-8 channel switcher for 8-channel output; I'm now ready to begin the wiring between boards!

Can anyone recommend a decent hookup wire to use in wiring my BIII between the different components?
I'm by no means convinced that fancy wire will improve the sound, I am just looking for something that is aesthetically-pleasing, to highlight the quality of the build. I was thinking something silver-plated. Any recommendations are appreciated, thank you!

I still consider myself a noob - but I've been using ApexJr. 22 gauge teflon milspec. stranded with silver plating. Seems to work well and is easy to work with.
