No HDMI Signal from HF G50

I have an XA 20 and HF G30 that l have been using without issue. I just added a HF G50 and cannot get any signal from the HDMI out when in camera mode. I have used known working cords (triple checked) and capture boxes/monitors. They work fine with the other cameras. Oddly enough I can get 1929x1080 out of it when in the Media mode, but only on the playback menu for pictures. If I try to playback video, it goes black and the monitor states “no signal”. I have tried it with 4K and 1080p. Suggestions? Anyone else have this issue?

Re: No HDMI Signal from HF G50

I've not used that camcorder, but reading the External connections section of the manual (starting page 96) it looks like it gives a rather complicated set of options for output based on display setup and depending on the monitor capability.

Does using scan mode setting PsF work?

Re: No HDMI Signal from HF G50

I got it!! I was up most the night trying and again today, but found the culprit. For others who may have this issue in the future, check the frame rate setting. When I changed it to 59.97fps, it clicked on and worked like a champ. Not sure why any other frame rate would completely disable the HDMI output, but they do. Only 59.97fps gets signal to send through the HDMI out.

Re: No HDMI Signal from HF G50

FWIW: I've encountered something sort of similar.with Black Magic Design's Intensity Pro and Media Express captures via HDMI. Media Express must exactly match the signal. If Media Express is set for a 59.94 and it receives a 60 fops it will not see it.
