    I am able to get live video feed from the USB ribbon cable that came with the H3-3D all the time. However, when I replace the hated USB ribbon cable with the popular 30 pin connector upgrade, I get iOSD but no video from the GoPro. I've now tried two different 30 pin connectors sourced from 2 different sellers (one connector is black, the other is silver) and I've tried two Hero 3 Black Editions.

    Since I get iOSD whether I use the 30 pin connector or USB ribbon cable, that means the vTx and vRx are working. And I get live video feed from both GoPros as long as I use the USB ribbon cable. I'm lost. I thought buying a new 30 pin connector would fix the issue. It didn't. So I borrowed a friend's Hero 3 Black Edition and tried it with both 30 pin connectors and no luck.
