HD-SDI output of 1080i from built-in cross converter

Is it possible to take 1080i out from SDI output and input it to the DR-HD100 with some type of modification? The reason I ask is the 200ub can now do this although from FW to the DR-HD100.

Thanks.

No... because the signal needs to be encoded into HDV2 (mpeg2) on firewire for the DR-HD100 or FS-4, FS-5 etc to input it. However, I can tell you about a new product that can do this.
Convergent-Design's new Flash XDR can accept a HD-SDI signal in any HD format and encode it to mpeg2 in HDV1 or HDV2, as well as the higher bit-rate formats for XDCAM and even Mpeg 422 at 100Mbps with all I frames - NO GOP! The Flash XDR can record sequentially to 4 CF cards (CF cards are cheap) but they showed me a brochure for the next model (nano XDR I think) that will be a mini version with a single CF card slot. It's an awesome product and it should be launching soon.
