WHat have you plugged in to the input of the converter? The converter converts whatever is on the input SDI to the component output.

Sorry... re-read... this is the other way around. Analog to SDI. I don't have one of those. Still... what have you got on the input anyway?

just composite going in, i thought the purpose of the unit was to up convert to 1080 to me the output is still 625i25 not even half def the tech diagram says HD-SDI/3GHD-SDI output and that is not happening

No. These are signal converters only...not scalers. Well. Mostly. The SDI to analog converter can down convert an HD-SDI signal to composite.
