Default Re: OT:SMPTE, LTC, MTC....

FCP and Premiere lok at time code through the RS422 port (serial machine control)
Macs use RS422 protocol not RS232, thats a PC protocol.
Horita products are the least expensive products you will find, but they are very good!!

My workaround was to import the video into FCP with a window burn,as QT DV, import the QT in protools, spot the movie according to the first frame window, edit and mix away!!!
26 shows all in sync!!!!! Although the BetaSps had code there was no need to use the code as it didnt stamp the code for use in PT.

Your best bet is to find a window generator, I used my USD, you can find a good Horita on eBay.
