I'm having a problem on my current job with my monitor, and I have no idea why it's happening.

I have a Marshall V-LCD70XP-3GSDI that I've been using since 2010. I'm currently flying a Red MX, which I have flown many, many times in the past. However, for some reason, my monitor won't recognize the SDI signal coming out of the camera from any of the SDI ports. However, it DOES work when I loop the signal from the camera through my Switronix Recon Ultra into my monitor.  The signal works just fine going directly into production's 17" monitor when I'm on sticks; why would mine be any different?

I have never had this problem before, and I've never seen or heard of it either. What could be causing it?

I believe the RED only outputs a progressive signal not psf. But I don't think your other monitor would be converting the signal, it just passes it through.

Maybe a ground issue on the video line?
