    Seems plausible to me. A diode is, among other factors, to some degree a capacitor too.

      they can do a fair bit more than that depending on the diode and how the are combined in a circuit - eg a zener diode is commonly used to stabilise an output voltage over a large range of input voltages:

      however I think John is fundamentally correct in that the issue with 'regulating' signals is that you then interfere with or risk degrading the signal istelf

        Hm, that would probably explain why one of the SDI ports on my Ursa Mini 4K no longer works..

          Most common scenario is having two devices powered from the same battery then connecting those devices together via the SDI. Tilta battery plates seemed to also be a big culprit for a while. I think lately I haven't seen many issues being reported.
