I think the real question would be not if it would work but how well would it look. Short lengths would probably be OK, but why take a chance with quality? It it the centerpiece of the whole setup.
well, the 9pin min-din connector sucks to say the least, and some being connected and disconnected quite a bit, one of the pins has been bent and while i managed to straighten that pin out a little bit, i have a feeling I am going to have a similar problem, so I was going to replace the connects with a 9pin serial end... which would remedy the connector problem, but I quick peak at the cable made me realize that it was sheilded.... I could always connect the sheilding the ground couldnt I ?!
