Trying to layoff to betacam Sp (UVW-1800) From fcp. have it hooked up through component and have d deck control. I cant seem to figure out where the ref out is on the multi bridge. I see in the settings tab when using a analog source you can use the sdi to be ref video is this correct? I have tried this and when I plug it into the deck the I see on the playback monitor that sync is lost. Anyone have any ideas?

Broadcast decks are usually linked to whole studio sync generator i.e. genlock.
You now simulate this with pal out as you have only one deck and output. In big studio
where you have a lot of different machines you have to keep them in sync that picture
would not "jump". As you only have 2 devices you can simulate sync like this.
This method has downside also. When you do not have any thing coming out from
pal you lose sync. Once you play out something you will be fine.
