1080 Monitor / 1084 Cable?

Any monitor experts out there that can help? I just bought a 1080 on eBay. I noticed these have male db9 ports on the back. I only have a cable for a 1084, with a male DB9 end. Can I just use a gender changer on these? It's been hard to track down this specific cable, but I did find a FM-FM adaptor. Assuming the pinouts are the same, but wanted to check.

Yes it works. I have extra cable and changer in storage. So one cable can work on both monitors. Or both cables work on one monitor. EDIT: This case would need both adapter genders.

If you want the exact pinout you have the Schematic diagram here, In the upper left corner of the picture. With this pinout info you can check your cable's wiring with a multimeter (continuity check) to be sure.


Can also be found in the last pages of the service manual

Still waiting on the monitor to arrive, but it looks like I'm all set. Thanks for the help! Much appreciated.
