I have the same converter and it works great. Have you hooked it directly to a monitor (skipping out the TX and RX) ?

I found that mine gives a better and more stable picture when it has a separate 5v supply, rather than getting its power from the NEX5 via the HDMI cable.

Okay, so yours takes power from the NEX5 cable. Connect the unit to your camera and eliminate...

Connect the video out from the convertor to a monitor. If there is no picture, then there are 3 causes
a) your convertor
b) the cable between convertor and your camera
c) camera does not output HDMI

To eliminate any issue with your camera and HDMI cable, try plugging your camera directly to the HDMI input of another monitor (no convertor in the equation). If you get picture, then you know thatbyour convertor is toast. If you don't get picture then you have a problem with cable / camera settings etc.

Are you supplying 5V via the mini USB port? I read that you could take power from the camera battery on 1080i but the HDMI converter just kept rebooting and video would keep cutting out. 5V via a BEC solved that problem for me and camera battery went for a lot longer also.
