Does anyone know if there are any electronics in line from the top video connector to the bottom video connector on an Archer 1 sled or if, as has been suggested by someone at Tiffen, it is a straight through cable?

I ask because I recently had to feed HD-SDI from top to bottom into a Decimator to feed the standard monitor, I had to power the Decimator from the bottom battery D-Tap in this case so couldn't top mount it as usual. While this worked OK for a few seconds it kept cutting out and losing the image. In the end I just ran a long cable down the post and fed the Decimator directly and it all worked fine. I was just wondering what might be causing it to cut out, the video line normally works OK so I don't suspect poor connections in this case. Maybe the internal cabling just isn't up to HD-SDI?
