Dean,

That's not my definition of straight through. Straight through means 1 to 1, 2 to 2, etc. Like Sentrytv said.

I can see it from your point of view, but that's not what I meant.

Think about two din connectors facing away from each other. If you ran a
wire straight-through from pin 5 on one side, it would go to pin 1 on the
other side.
