    BMD mini monitor - no hdmi output

    I'm chekcing on this for a friend.  Mac Pro trashcan, MC 8.8.5, BMD desktop video 10.9.1.  The SDI output works just fine but the HDMI output seems to not be working.  Has anyone run into this before.  We tried two different mini montors with the same results.  We know the tv's hdmi inptuts are working properly.

     

    Thanks.

    What project format? Not all HDMI monitors accept all signal flavors. Not all will do 23.976p or 24.000p, most will not take 23.976PsF and 24.000PsF.

    That's a good question.  I will ask them.

     

    Right now they have the SDI sginal feeding a SmallHD monitor and then the HDMI out of that to the TV.  It's possible the small HD is converting to something that the TV likes.

     

    Much appreciated.

    Samsung TV HDMI inputs don't work with mini monitor in my experience. I use an HDMI active disembedder that reconditions the HDMI signal enough to make the Samsung happy. BM confirmed that other customers with Samsung have the same issue

    Worked fine with my Samsung TV's... But was on 24p projects. 25p might be an issue.

    Re: BMD mini monitor - no hdmi output

    Though the BMD MM obviously works with some (or most?) Samsung TVs, it unfortunately doesn't do that with all of them. A few months ago I had a (at that time) brand-new one for a 24p project... tried different BMD drivers and different cables... nothing worked until they replaced the TV with a non-Samsung. (Also tried an AJA T-Tap which at least brought the image to the screen, but the signal had glitches.) So if gumbaedit's friend owns a Samsung, it could be worth testing it with another brand.
