not sure if I understood correctly. iirc, PicassoII has passthrough for scandoubler. the resistor is not a problem for that cable.

anyway, I wouldn't remove it, but find a better suited cable.

@Kitch
I think he means cut the (R,G,B) line and connect capacitor between two ends (+ to the Amiga end). AC signal 'skips' the capacitor, DC is blocked.
this just if you can't wait for his reply.
