The SI 2K 3D Sync Box has two very inviting 8-pin Lemo connectors. According to the SI pinout it's polarity on pins 1and 2 are reverse from that of the Pro Style 8-pin. DO NOT PLUG ANY PRO COMPATIBLE MONITOR IN THIS UNIT. YOU WILL FRY IT!

Not so fast there tex.

IF you have a Cinetronics Monitor you can plug it in and it will work just fine. Cinetronics has thoughtfully put reverse polarity protection in their monitors so that it doesn't care if you have power reversed at the input, the monitor will sort it out and power up
