Smoke 2013 AJA Broadcast Monitor Delay

I have the full version of smoke 2013 installed on a Mac Pro with a AJA card hooked up to a couple broadcast monitors and I'm getting a 2 or 3 frame (Noticeable) delay from the viewer in smoke to the monitors hooked up through the AJA. Picture and sound seem to be synced up, as both are coming from the AJA card, but I'm getting that delay from the computer monitor to the broadcast monitor. Is there a way to get those two to sync up as it's very distracting and throws me off when trying to edit.

Also, everything is cool when working in FCP7.


Thanks

If I remember correctly there should be a setting in the Broadcast monitor preferences to set a delay so you can adjust it to get the broadcast out in sync with the monitor.

Hope this helps!

Actually, that option is in the audio settings.

I am wondering if it only affects the audio timing. Give it a go and see if it makes a difference.

It just delays the audio.. So you can sync to the computer monitor or the brodcast. But not both.

Saddly, the broadcast or hires monitor can be in sync, not both.

I think it's unavoidable if you are editing 25fps (the time it takes to do readback from the video board plus most likely having a non-multisync LCD). But it should be achievable for 30 or 60i (or at least with smaller skips).
