Your JTV-69 should include a Workbench hardware interface and a cable that connects your JTV to it. I would use this cable as your interim solution. It is protected on one end (for connection to the JTV) and not protected on the other end. Connect this other end to your HD500 VDI input and use this setup until your VDI cable (protected on both ends) arrives.

Is the cable that's included long enough for stage use? When you say "protected", what do you mean?
Also, back to my question about a Cat 5e/6 cable; is that possible?
Thanks for your input,

It's not very long - you'd have to try it out to see if it's long enough for your stage use.
By 'protected' I mean that the cable ends are shielded in a round housing, and kept rigid so that the connector inside the shield is prevented from damage and movement while connected.
Yes, a standard Ethernet cable will work. Just be careful about keeping the cable ends securely in place. Stage use is not recommended - there will likely be movement of the cable ends within the jack due to the stress placed on the cable (both ends) while you are moving around on stage.
