To View the Current Status of Conversion Loops

You can view the status of all the up/down converters that SmartConversion is managing either in the display on the Fade to Black Module, or on the Converter Status menu. The FTB Display personality option must be set to display the number of free up/down converters.

  1. Double-press the crosspoint button for the video source that you want to view the up/down converter status for. This can be on an ME or an Aux Bus.
  2. Press SmartConversion.
  3. Press Converter Status.

    The current status of the conversion loops is displayed on the menu.

    • Converter — up/down converter (displayed as the Aux Bus that is connected to the up/down converter).
    • Input — name of the input source currently being converted. If the source is not currently on-air, this displays the last source that was converted and on-air.
    • In Use — Yes if the current source is on-air and the up/down converter is unavailable for use by another source. No if the source is not on-air and the up/down converter is available for use.
    • Locked — the name of the bus-pair the up/down converter is locked to. If the up/down converter is not locked to a specific bus-pair, Not Locked is displayed.
    • Converters — the number of assigned up/down converters out of the total number of each specific video format.
