        Okay, so the insides do what they say and do it fine. But...This box has no buttons, displays, etc. on it. You get a cheesy ([*]-knock-off-toy quality) IR remote for setup on screen only. This is a professional piece of gear mounted in a rack, seriously? I have to get a remote out of a drawer to configure/change anything?On top of that, the main thing I need to set up with the remote is the output settings so my projectors can display the signal. But I can't see the on screen menus until I set the right settings via the on screen settings. Curse. Lather. Repeat. Had to go buy a multi-res SDI monitor just to set the settings on this thing. Also, the rack ear screws were missing and the manual is terrible. You CAN do the configurations via RS-232 if you go to their website and download a badly written manual on the serial commands, but unless your time is nearly free and your patience unlimited, you'll need a monitor attached to it to do setup.NOTE: I realize that many people that buy this will connect the SDI outs to device that can (somewhere downstream) display SD/HD SDI and will auto switch to whatever its putting out, but for the rest, the engineers were pretty narrow minded.
