EX-1 and On Camera SD Monitor...Please Help

Ok So I have an EX-1 and I just got an external monitor from a stabilizer which I purchased from varizoom...for some reason the monitor doesn't work...it says "no signal"..this is what I did

1. From EX1 I took a BNC cable out of the "SDI-Out" Port
2. The other end of the cable was hooked up directly into the Video In
3. Turned On The Monitor and The Camera
4. From the camera's Menu, I did the following:
a. Went To the "Video Set" option in the Menu
b. Turned "On" the "video out display" & set the "YPbPr/SDI Out" to HD

This didn't work so I set the "YPbPr/SDI Out" to SD...

Still no luck...what am I missing over?

you need the composite cable not the SDI cable - SDI is a digital signal for studio type working

Thank you for your assistance...It eventually clicked that the manual may have something so I figured it out that the A/V out component hidden under the grip might do the job.....not a very convenient location
