Macbook Pro HDMI to SDI problems

Hey Everyone,

I'm trying to convert HDMI on a Macbook Pro to SDI with a Blackmagic Mini converter and then pass that signal onto a Panasonic switcher. For this build specifically I'm using a Panasonic AW-HS50N. I know the convertor works because when I plug it directly into a monitor I get a good clean signal. But, when I plug into the switcher, it sees nothing. I'm running the system in 1080i for the record. Oh, and I know the switcher is working ok because I'm also converting 2 Panasonic cameras with the same kind of converters and bringing those in on the first two inputs. They look great, no issues with those at all. I also moved those around to other inputs, all the inputs work fine. Any ideas on the computer? I've used the convertors very successfully with cameras, but I've had problems with computers and the HDMI to SDI converters on 3 separate builds. I'm starting to think it may be time for another solution. But, would love to know if I'm missing something. Thanks!
