DOH! Found it under special/video out/. All is well now.
I shield mine and ground the shield on both sides.
On such a small distance it's not as critical but if you were to go 50 ft (ie a network cable) it would make a difference for crosstalk or interference.
Grounding the shield on both sides will not hurt anything.

To connect the TBS 69 to the discovery (with that little plate), what screws should I use? Is it standard M2 and if so, what length would you recommend? (I have tried some M2 x 6 but they are too long.)
hmmm good question. it doesn't have to be long, maybe 3mm?
Has anyone written a manual for this camera yet.......There are a lot of options I don't know what they do or if I should change them to produce better results.
there's a video online that documents the changes each of the settings makes. it's the 2nd video on the TBS69 product page.
Well I finally found my Video problem, For whatever reason the cable that came with my TBS69 is pinned wrong, Can someone take a picture of the cable from a working setup? (Mine currently goes Yellow White Black Red) what from the quick views i get in videos appears to be wrong. Thanks guys
Rowdy, the pinout is exactly the same as your TBS69 cable (the one that goes to the camera). plug that into the socket of the DISCOVERY to see the colored pinout. The cable that you are trying to use is actually supposed to be used for the VTx. Sorry for the confusion!
the only cable I got with the TBS69 is one that switches it to RCA. I used to to connect to the board but the pinout is incorrect for whatever reason. I soldered it accord to the Discovery, however it is pinned wrong at the camera side.
