The owner/operator who rented us the gear says there is something called PSF or SPF that is a setting in the camera that maybe needs to be changed. I don't have a clue what that is and neither do either of the 1st's. By the way, we're out in the middle of nowhere, so the chance that it's interference seems to be low. Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks.

- What kind of sled do you have? Monitor?
- How is the AJA being powered? How is the monitor, camera, etc being powered?
I haven't had time to track down the problem, but I know when I run my Decimator 2 off the CAM PWR on my PRO2 sled, and use my Modulus 2000 with the 4-pin LEMO connector for power and video signal, I get video distortion on the receiver end. If I use the 2 pin AUX PWR port on my sled to power the Modulus 2000, I get no video distortion. Of course, it primarily happens with RED cameras, I haven't tested it yet with an Alexa.
Looking online real quickly, it looks like the AJA downconverters can handle PSF (Progressive segment frame, although I heard it once called Progressive shift frame) or regular P (progressive).

Guessing it had to do with trying to power the alexa 24v and power the AJA 12 volt ( The AJA i have has 5-18V, printed on it at power in plug)
Reading up now, sure I'm not the first to have the problem.?
I was trying to run the sled in 24v mode, power the AJA of the sled as well. (old pro 1)
thinking a 24 volt decimator may be best plan., and lighter.
