Hello,

My end goal is to make my CrystalSky screen visible via a TV monitor, so groups of people can see clear and easily what I see on my controller screen.  I know the Cedence remote has an HDMI port.  Just wondering if I need to connect to that via a long HDMI cord or if there's a better way.  

I'm using an M210 with the Cedence and CrystalSky.

Thank you for your time and help.

I don't have a Cedence . . . but the HDMI out to any monitor/TV should work fine.  I've plugged into LIVE Broadcasts (via Inspire 2 remote HDMI out) and never had any issues . . . the wired solution is simple, but you can find wireless solutions, but will cost a bit more.

Hi, Jason, sure you will need HDMI cable to connect to the monitor which supports HDMI input.

Thank you for your responses.  I just got off the phone with DJI Support and they told me bad news.  

Being able to connect via HDMI and/or Live Streaming is a good way to do it.  The unfortunate part is that I'm using the Zenmuse XT Thermal camera and wanted to show it off to people, but apparently no matter how you choose to Broadcast the screen to the monitor, the XT will not show.  I hope this is not true.

Thank you again!  Happy flying.

Same issue here. When connecting two cameras to M210, only one or none at all transmits over the HDMI port. The menu points for configuration are there, but it doesn't work.
Big issue!
Connecting directly to the HDMI-out of CrystalSky works, but it doesn't give you a broadcast signal, it contents the same as on CrystalSky including all telemetry data.

I figured out how to do it...at least what I need.  Simple fix!  

Use an HDMI and plug it into the Crystal Sky monitor and the TV monitor.  Then go to your settings on the Crystal Sky (button looks like 3 lines)...go to HDMI, then turn On.  Then I also zoomed as much as possible (you'll see it in settings).  It doesn't fill the entire width of the TV, but it's good enough for what I need.   I've attached a picture so you can see what I got!

If you plug the HDMI into the controller, it will only show the blown up version of X4S (and not XT).  Even when XT is blown up, it shows it as the small PIP.

I have a Cendence Remote with a Crystal Sky Monitor that I use with our Matrice 210
We have the X5s, Z30 and XT Cameras also.
On the Cendence remote while trying to display the video feed through the HDMI port the only camera that display through the HDMI port to a second Monitor is the
X5s Camera the Z30 and the XT only display a Gray screen. We tried other remotes and Crystal Sky's and get the same results .
All firmware is up to date does anyone had similar issues or work around?

I use 2 Cendence and Crystalsky, 1 as master, 1 as slave. On the master Cendence, I don't have video output on hdmi, on the slave, I have video output on hdmi, but only 1 camera, the other is gray.
When I use the hdmi on the master Crystalsky, I have video from both cameras. I see exactly the same as on my Crystalsky. But you have to go to the settings from hdmi to switch it on and copy the screen. When I switch from camera (from X4S to XT), I can see the view from the XT on Crystalsky and TV on big screen. Same with slave Crystalsky.

I have found the same thing that others have. ie only video from camera on gimbal one is displayed via HDMI from the cendence hdmi port. If you move whatever camera you'd like to display to gimbal position one, it will display the video of that camera including the XT. I had not thought to try the hdmi on the crystal sky.
