I think you would, yes.

I experimented with using active repeater cables with the old 3000 series scopes with some limited success but it was unreliable.

Current PicoScope data transmission is a LOT more intense and I doubt it would work at all but have not tried it.

For best results use only the Pico blue USB cables.
