You got it right by the end. You need a third external cable.
The SDI-cables are always crossed, which means you always need an odd
number of cables.

Where to get the cables? COMPAQ if you can pay for them. Other sites that
are throwing out their stuff if you definitely don't want to pay. Some
dealer in used equipment is a third alternative. Ask anywhere where you
might expect to find SDI disks.

I wouldn't try to build that cable...
