Frank says it is a remote pause switch for one of the old 1970's era VCR's. He said it with conviction, so I think he has got it!

5/17/2018: Retired a second time, this time from my volunteer Admin duties. After 10 years of being on the team, and 40,000+ posts, the time just seemed right. It has been such fun to work with all of our Mods and Admins and I plan to stick around as a regular member.

The IR Blaster idea sounds the most likely. The shape is perfect. Note that there are four connectors on that 1/8" plug -- I wouldn't expect that many if it was just turning the LED on/off.

But in any case, it's going in the trash...

It looks like an extension to enable a VCR to be controlled by a cable box. Older cable boxes (before DVR) had the ability to select a show (uisng the tv schedule menu) to record and turn on the VCR when the show started (instead of programming the timer on the VCR).
