    Comments about Matrox DVI Plus HD-SDI Scan Converter:

    It is pricey and the image clarity is a bit fuzzy = four stars.

    I am using this to run a signal from my Mac Mini to Sony MCS-8m switcher running at 720p/59.94 and it works just fine. Takes a moment to kick signal over after turning it on. It's been stable since August 2013.

    Comments about Matrox DVI Plus HD-SDI Scan Converter:

    The plan was to use this product in line with my extended desktop monitor (Sony KDL-46XBR2 which is currently working with a DVI - HDMI adapter) and use the converted HD-SDI signal to use as an input to my router. The problem I had is with the DVI loop through on the Matrox. When in line with my extended desktop, the Sony monitor would say "unsupported signal" and I get no picture, I suspect it's not supporting HDCP. I had different results with a Panasonic BT-LH2550 and it's DVI input. It works fine in 1080i mode but will not sync up in 720p mode. The odd thing is that the DVI Loop did work with a computer display like a Samsung Sync Master 244T in either mode. The HD-SDI output signal worked in every scenario and picture quality was very good.

    I had some issues with the software driver as well. After installation and reboot I got the Blue Screen of Death. I rebooted again and the software loads and stay's resident which is not how I was intending to run it. I don't like software running when the equipment would rarely need changes after initial set up.

    I talked to Matrox tech support in regard to this DVI Loop issue I was having and the reply was that the DVI loop should have no effect on the signal and they were at a loss for a solution to my problem at this time.

    I have decided to return the product due to the incompatibility with my displays and the difficulty I had with the software installation.
