Default sync i/o light blinking...24 pull up vs 23.976

working on a film in HD over here. The timecode burned into the footage is 24 frame code

PT recognizes the video track as 23.976 fps

And numbers match up fine in this mode in the timeline, video, and PT counters

but the light on the sync i/o in the 24 frame position keeps blinking.

Putting the session into 24 fps PULL UP makes the light on the sync i/o stop blinking

can anyone explain what exactly is going on here and/or which session setup is better for this footage?

thank you!

Default Re: sync i/o light blinking...24 pull up vs 23.976

make sure the clock source is internal and not WC or Vid Ref UNLESS you can do a pull on the clock source

blinking slow = clock source is slower than the frame rate
blinking fast = clock source is faster " " " " " "
