I had already read the stuff on your site about the adapter not
fitting, but I was trying to avoid having it dangling out of the wall
plate. But if there isn't any space inside the units then I guess
that will be the only solution.
The diagram is indeed helpful, but it got me thinking. Would it be
possible (again space might be a problem) to fit 4 dip switches
to 'short' across each of the resistors so that I end up with a unit
that can be AVS-RX or AVS-RXU. The reason I ask is that when (note I
didn't say if ;-)) the switcher is available, I assume I will need
AVS-RX units rather than AVS-RXU.
