No REF to Sony BetaSP Deck
on Mar 19, 2009 at 1:10:20 am

I searched the archives but could not find any solution to this problem. There was a suggestion back in 2007 about looping the composite video in to Ref in but that did not work. Here is the problem. I just installed a Blackmagic Studio card to my dual-boot Vista/XP system and everything is working fine except I keep getting an alarm on the deck that reads "Ref video is not detected. Input a ref video signal". Can someone please help me solve this problem?
Regards,
Tim

Hi Tim,

The solution is to buy a small sync generator something like this one

and sync your card and deck from that.

Hi Tim,

The solution is to buy a small sync generator like an Horita BSG 50 and sync your card and deck from that.

Hi Tim -
Jason has given you excellent advice. But because this is a Blackmagic forum, you should really buy the Blackmagic sync generator for $295 retail, and $280 mail order. And certainly you can go onto ebay and get a used Horita BSG-50.

I love Blackmagic, and some of their products like the Broadcast Videohub are among the greatest products ever developed in the history of our industry. But when Blackmagic came out with that STUPID ASS SUGGESTION of looping back the Y output of a Beta VTR into the Ref Video input to get rid of the ERROR-093 NON STD SYNC error - well, that is in the running for the STUPIDEST SUGGESTIONS in the history of our industry.

Do you know why Tim - because if you are in this business, and you do this for a living, YOU NEED TO OWN A BLACK GENERATOR. I don't care if you have 10 starving children, I don't care if your mother is dying of cancer, and you need the money for for her medicine. I don't care if the terrorists are going to blow up your house unless you hand over that 300 bucks - YOU are going to buy a Black Generator if it's the last thing you do. You are going to solve this problem once and for all, and never complain about it ever again. BUY A BLACK GENERATOR, or the evil spirits from the Australian outback will haunt your sprit for all eternity.

And Tim, tomorrow morning, order the following item (just a suggestion) -
