Hmm, now that you mention it, I remember trying something like that
several years ago, when we had to have an SGI (RGB, SOG) drive a video
projector (RGB, CSYNC). We had a 13W3-to-3xBNC cable and put a BNC
T-piece on the green, with a short coax to the CSYNC BNC on the
projector. It worked well enough, even though the T-piece and cable
were 50-ohm cheapernet parts.
