More on Sony multi-core CCUs

I have experienced intermittent problems with Sony D30, 35, and D50 cameras connected to multi-core CCUs not always putting out color from the component outputs on long runs, 100 meters and longer. I have not been able to isolate these issues, but have had other engineers express that it has more to do with the camera than the CCU. One solution I have discovered is that, if I power up the CCU after making all the connections, rather than powering up CCU, connecting CCZ cable, then powering up camera, I seem to have less problems. Another engineer told me that you should never hook up camera cable to a powered CCU, CCZ or triax, although I’m not sure of the accuracy of that statement.
