The output settings on the UM4K needs to match what the ATEM is set for. Which SDI output are you using, rent monitor or the rear main SDI out? The front is going to be 1080p only, the rear SDI out is 4K or HD, depending on the menu settings,

I feel your suggestion might be the issue Denny, But trying to change the output setting on the UM4k to 1080i is impossible as it is grayed out. I can only switch between 1080p and 2160p. it's even worse on the second unit as I can only select 1080p

Yes, try it with the camera set to 1080p59.94, if it is still grayed out, then you have the same issue as the Ursa I have at rhe Studio. You will need to get the new BM Up/Down/Cross Converter HD to change 1080p29.97 or 1080p59.94 to 1080i59.94.
