Wiggle the connectors on the magic cable. If that does not fix the issue, unplug and re-plug it a couple times. Next step would be to replace the cable.

It has been less than 18 hours since I powered them up so I am not yet wondering why the the REF-0 LED's are in the state they are as I have seen reports of others having to wait 24 hours or so before every "locks in".

When first powered up they were blinking on and off at about the same time. The blinking is about once per second (simple observation) but one unit is blinking a bit faster (or slower) than the other and they slowly rotate through blinking together to not being together.
