[lumiere]"since I've upgraded to 3.4 Kona Control Panel, I can't get 1080sf23.98 to play ball with FCP."
on of the big changes to that control panel was to add support for true P in 1080, so make sure that you are choosing the 1080 sf setup and make sure the Ref is set to video in, on the 1800 I have seen issues with static 29.97 ref and 23.98 signals.
see you in Amsterdam?
