    What cable am I to use with Pilot?

    I have the DSMC2 V-Lock I/O Expander.
    The Pilot has a RCA-connection, I suppose the signal from Raven should go there.
    But which on the Expander shall I use?

    DC IN (6-Pin 1B LEMO socket)
    3G-SDI output (75 Ω BNC), 60 Hz max frame rate
    HDMI 1.2 output (Type A socket), 60 Hz max frame rate
    SYNC (Genlock IN / Timecode IN / Sync IN) (4-Pin 00B LEMO socket)
    CTRL (Tally OUT / RS-232 Rx and Tx) (4-Pin 00B LEMO socket)
    USB Power output (Type A socket), 1.5A
    P-Tap Aux Power output (2-Pin), 3.0A
    Stereo Analog Microphone input (3.5mm jack)
    Stereo Headphone output (3.5mm jack)

    No RCA output as far as I can see.

    I would appreciate any help.

    (Tech has moved forward with all the gimbals out there, but I really should be getting along with the Pilot.
    I have had it for several years, but I have never been friends with it. Now it is the last try ...)

    Forget RCA analog signal, you need to feed a new SDI cable down the post and replace the monitor with an SDI HD monitor. You might also run a new DC cable down the post as well.

    I did this modification on a Steadicam flyer 24LE, it can also be done on the pilot in the same fashion. here is my step by step modification guide.
