Since you asked about SR and SL, in that case I guess those wires are connected to your surround speakers. If that's true then

  • SL Surround speaker (L)
  • SR Surround speaker (R)

And what does it mean S-L in this case ? – oneat Sep 12 '10 at 18:44
In SR cables heat put changes according to temperature. SR cable increases heat output as temperature decreases and decreases heat output as temperature increases. – subanki Sep 12 '10 at 18:44
SL - sheathed Lead cable – subanki Sep 12 '10 at 18:50
SR self regulating cable is for deicing gutters and other parts of your house. This cable actually generates heat for the purpose of melting snow. I doubt this is plugged into his computer. – Garrett Sep 12 '10 at 21:22
Why do I still have Down-votes :( – subanki Sep 13 '10 at 15:10

SR Cables ("Short-range") are networking cables, used for fiber optic communications.
