I posted the other day about a problem we has with DVW 500 and our Igniter. That problem seems to be solved--we brought in a new DVw 2000 and have used the genlock on the igniter which seems nice and stable.
However, now when we plug in our AES out into the Deck, the deck's input select keeps flashing on our digital signal. Thew analong works fine--and we have a digital signal playing through, but it isn't stable.
Is there a way to check this? This has never happened before--curious if anyone knows what the problem could be.

We figured out the genlock--picture is stable and all seems to be set right. The DVW-M2000 has digital menus which are a pain to set if you are used to the manual settings, but we seem to be OK. The big mystery is why our AES in (coming from Igniter) is flashing on the Deck. We have a signal now, but we can't get it to lock down like the analogue signal we are sending to 3 +4.
I've frequently noticed this when outputting AES/EBU via the Igniter. I'm using the Pipe Pro now and don't have this problem. However, that being said, I've output at least fifty shows throught the Igniter using the AES ouputs of the Igniter. Yes, the AES lights on the A500 flash, but I've never had a record problem. I've played back the recorded problem and it's always been good. Dozens of shows recorded like this have been sent out for broadcast and past stringent QA.
