Hi, I have been watching this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NfKzY...ted&search=

in it the presenter mentions the LUMISPHERE being UP or DOWN on the meter (Around 5 mins into video) does UP = sensor showing and DOWN =sensor covered or is it the other way round please.

I think what you need to do is see whether you can identify the meter being used in the video, then look it up online to see which way the lumisphere works. Lumispheres aren't all attached the same way. It depends on the make and model of the meter it goes with.

The presenter in the video is using a Sekonic meter. The dome can be set so it protrudes or is retracted. When the dome is protruding (up) the meter will read light from all the strobes (main & fill in this video.) When the dome is retracted (down) the meter reads only the light of the strobe it's aimed at.
