Pertec Interface Cable Fun

I just received the controller to hook my Cipher streamer
up to my Prime. Usually, there are little colored stick-on
dots affixed to the edge connectors and the corresponding
cable connectors for easy matching. Not this time.

I've briefly looked at the Pertect pinout as per a short
document on John Wilson's web site. However, I didn't
study it enough to have a feel for what happens if the
cables are hooked up backwards (ie simple non-function
versus a smoke-releasing exercise).

Does anyone know what happens under these conditions?
