Can Mini monitor PCI output 1080p on HDMI + 720p SDI?

HI
Oh I see you have a 90's style character limit on the title just like eBay, it's like tweeting isn't it? Quaint and retro!

As I cannot use Thunderbolt on the Supermicro, I have sold my Ultrastudio. I used to have Decklink Extreme HD3 which could output Downconverted SDI to my SD grade1 monitor and send HD SDI to the Ultrascope and HD HDMI to the plasma.

If I just got a mini monitor PCIe could it simultaneously send HD over HDMI and SD to SDI, or is it one or the other? Are there any hacks? eg could I hack the output of the Ultrastudio to downconvert? Could I hack the SDI output of the Hyperdeck 1 to SD? I guess I just need a seperate downconverter but just wondering about other options.

The Hyperdeck actually converts HDMI to SDI, but probably only in 8 bit...

It can't. You need better model (4K one). Some of them have dedicated downscale output (HD for UHD main signal and SD for HD), eg.

All simpel models will always output same signal over SDI and HDMI.
