Decklink HD Extreme to DVW-A500 channel condition problems.
on Mar 3, 2010 at 10:33:48 am

I've been delivering tapes to broadcasters for three years with my current set up and NEVER had this problem. But now I seem to have played out a bunch of tapes with channel condition flashes all over the place. I thought I'd solved the problem by updating my blackmagic driver, and whilst I don't seem to be getting issues with my playouts I now seem to have lost SDI input capability and have gained a weird issue where when watching back over my tapes for channel conditions (having grown paranoid of them!) I get none if I watch a tape with just a deck to monitor setup, but if my computer is connected and I've got the Edit to Tape window up in FCP to control the tape whilst checking it I get channel condition flashes the whole time, as if the computer is sending out weird little pulses of bad to the deck that don't actually effect anything...

Any ideas? Anyone!?

Any extra clarification needed, do say and I'll reply right back. Cheers!

The fix is don't use a machine with drum hours approaching 8,000...

Ooops!
