        Converter is nice in that it will convert HD SDI to analog composite video however it seems to occasionally lock up when switching from HD to SD and then back to HD on the input .

          Comments about Blackmagic Design Mini Converter SDI to Analog 4K:

          I bought two MiniConverter SDI to Analog 4K and I use them every day since a few months. I use one of them to convert HD-SDI signal coming from my Live video switcher (Panasonic HMX-100) to composite signal routed toward my RF-Modulator. I diffuse live video 6 times a day, but during the night, I shut off my HMX-100 (and sometimes during the day). So, during this time, the MiniConverters remain connected, but there is no signal input to them. When I send them a signal again by turning on my HMX-100, very often, the composite output is corrupted: there are white horizontal lines oscillating and covering all the screen. Every time, I have to unplug the electrical cable, wait for ten secondes, and then manualy reprogram the first jumper in order to have my 16:9 ratio image. BlackMagic was not aware of this issue and after having reported it to them, they have succesfully reproduced the trouble in there lab. So they are working to fix it, but it takes a while. My support ticket is open since 4 months now.Otherwise, I should admit that picture quality is perfect. I use the second converter on the same rig, but I output HD Component instead of SD Composite, and there is no trouble. Take note that these units tends to become hot.
