Default Smpte/Midi Sync Interface?

What's everyone out there using to make Pro Tools Generate Midi Time Code so you can sync an external sequencer to Timecode or make Pro Tools chase to a video deck? I've currently been using MOTU midi interfaces, but now I want to upgrade to Win2k Pro, but can't because MOTU won't make drivers for Win2k, is there other options? Motu reminds me of another company that dragged it's feet on Windows support, I believe that company went by the name of Opcode and we all seen what happened to them. MOTU hasn't made any updated drivers for their midi interfaces on the PC side since 1998 and are bragging about it. Maybe a little help from everyone in this forum Emailing them, will get them off their asses and support PC users.

As you may or may not know Pro Tools currently has no support for the Windows 2000
platform. Support for WinME is planned for Pro Tools LE 5.1.
Pro tools can generate MTC via the session
setup window (CNTRL+2)MTC to Port, select
Digi001. This will send MTC out of the 001 MIDI port to your external sequencer.

Hi everybody, i am also considering getting a sync unit for my 001/win98 setup and I started reading the sync pages in the reference guide but I'm still not sure if 001 supports the extra features the MOTU TPAV harbor -PullUp\Down, 256x word clock, et cetera- or if I would just be wasting my money on it; am I limited to the XT Express?Any other suggestions would help. Any response much appreciated.
