Hey all, hope this is the right section...

Every few days, one particular camera on my Toshiba DVR will show blank on my remote monitoring software and also on the monitor at the DVR.

The signal comes from the camera through a balun, then over a CAT-5 twisted pair, through a receiving balun, then a barrel connector, a short patch coax, then into the DVR.

I find that if I disconnect the receiving balun from the barrel connector and plug it into my GANZ PSM-02 COLOUR PORTABLE SERICE MONITOR, I almost always immediately see a clear signal on Ganz - or at most have to flip the unit on and off a couple of times.

Then, when I reconnect the receiving balun and the barrel connector, the signal is good to go for another couple of days at the DVR.

I've replaced the receiving balun several times, but this behavior always reoccurs.

Any thoughts? Thanks!

I would also change out the barrel connector and any other patch cords/connectors it will only cost a few dollars and will eliminate those items as a trouble spot.
