Those that own the Shogun Inferno: What's the monitoring frame rate?

After being disappointed with the lack of HFR monitoring on another unnamed competitor, I need to hear from owners of the Shogun Inferno:

What is the monitoring frame rate of the Shogun Inferno when the source is 48fps, 50fps or 60fps? Is the output for playback and passthrough HFR compatible?

Another question then: Is anyone having problems with the lack of a downscaler built into the Inferno?

Re: Those that own the Shogun Inferno: What's the monitoring frame rate?

For standard video (non-RAW) signals on the Shogun Inferno, the output frame rate matches the input frame rate. So if you are inputting 2160p50 or 2160p60 to the Inferno over its HDMI input, while recording it will be sending the same signal 2160p50 or 2160p60 out over its HDMI output. Same is also true for HD (1080p50/60) video signals. Also, both the HDMI and SDI outputs are active simultaneously with the same signal (so you could use the Inferno as an expensive HDMI to SDI or SDI to HDMI converter if you wanted to).

When playing back recorded footage, both the HDMI and SDI outputs will be active with the same signal at the frame rate it was recorded (up to 2160p60).

With the latest firmware update, the Inferno is supposed to be able to record Sony RAW signals (from the FS700, FS5, and FS7) at 1080p/2K at 100fps, 120fps, 200fps, and 240fps. I haven't had a chance to try this yet, so I am not sure what the Inferno will output over HDMI or SDI during recording or playback of these high frame rate RAW signals.
