Default Re: PT and USD dropping out of sync!?

Hey Karen — When you say "USD sees TC for maybe 10 sec and then nothing", does the TC no longer show up at the USD's window, or does it simply stop chasing at that point, while TC is still making it to the USD?

If the USD's still receiving TC but you're simply losing lock, try increasing the Freewheel frames in the Session Setup/Status window… I believe the default is 8 frames; I usually have success with 12 or 15. On the other hand, if TC stops moving in the USD's window, I'd suspect the TC on the tape. And the fact that two tapes with the same video have the same dropout suggests bad TC to me.

Sorry if this is too simplistic or you've "been there done that". Good luck.

Warmest Regards,
