I prepped a Mini on my rig today. I'm going into a Decimator to feed my SD monitor. I have solid picture most of the time but then it will randomly lose sync. I haven't had these issues with other cameras so I'm ruling out any problems with the downconverter or the monitor aside from compatibility issues. Thoughts? Solutions?

Try changing the SDI output format on the mini. Depending on the format you are shooting the 2nd BNC might be limited on what it can be set to. Did you try swapping out BNC cables?

Didn't swap cables but I was coming straight out of the 1st BNC. Output was set to 24Pfs. Switched to 60 and that seemed ok but didn't have enough time to fully test it. Just trying to get all the answers before shooting tomorrow.
