stedicam pilot/EX1 and monitor signal

having problems getting a pic on monitor of pilot ... using the bnc adapter with the rca cable and plugged into the pilot and am not getting no picture.. i have went thru all possible setting in the ex1 video set menu ... but now if i plug in the supplied av connection cable that came with the ex1 and use only the video connect to the pilot i get a picture on monitor.but this seems to be a bit much having 2 audio connects just dangling around. to use just the sdi with the bnc what would i have to do ... i must be missing something ...

Sony EX1 composite video signal

The BNC connector is digital only, so you have to use the breakout connector.

If you can solder your own cables, make a short little adapter (see attached picture). You can buy a cable to cut down here:
Sony Handycam Audio Video Cable - VMC15FS -

Note that many other sony cameras use this same breakout cable, so you should also be able to find this cable in a regular retail store somewhere.
