HA5 not working?
on Jul 10, 2010 at 2:04:39 am

Hello, I rented an AJA HA5 to interface between an Intensity Pro and a Sony BVM-L230. Problem is I seem to be getting no signal into or out of the HA5. I connected the HDMI from the Intensity and the HD-SDI to the L230, then plugged in the power to the HA5. Opened FCP, set video out to 1080i59.94, view all frames... and nothing, no picture. I tested the Intensity directly to an HDMI monitor with the same FCP settings, and it worked fine. On the HA5, the LED light (sd/hd indicator) is not turning on when the signal is coming in from the Intensity. I don't know if there's an incompatibility problem or if maybe the power source isn't working correctly, or maybe the HA5 itself is dead. Any ideas would be much appreciated.

Also I couldn't find the answer to another HA5 question, what is the SDI Output 2 used for? The manual says it's a Loop Output (not sure what that means). Can anyone clarify?
