    Why is it the the Kona2 is an HD/SD card and the component out is only SD? You would think it would be switchable just like the SDI inputs and outputs. Can this be a future option that we can use? I have an LCD monitor that uses component HD that I would like to use for client viewing.

    [Wayne Carey] “Why is it the the Kona2 is an HD/SD card and the component out is only SD?”

    It is HD. It automatically detects what is being sent and displays as such. Or you can go out to the Kona 2 Control panel and manually set it.

    I just leave it set to 1080i all time and it automatically detects what FCP is sending to it.

    The analog component out is dual-rate, SD and HD. As Walter said, configure it in the KONA Control Panel as you wish, and KONA will apply any up- or down- convert as may be needed!

    Thank you,

    Thanks, guys….. I feel like an idiot now… 🙂 I guess sometimes we do seem to have the time to play around with the software to see if it will do what we want. Thanks again!
