Got a problem that I just can't fix. I'm capturing video from a beta deck via a Kona LHe card into Final cut 6.0.2. The audio is in sync at start of clip but drifts gradually, so after 5 mins it's totally out.
I've used the same kit successfully for this workflow for ages - nothing new. I had this problem a few months ago and a total FCP reinstall seemed to fix it. That time it was an intermittent problem. But this time it happens on every clip.
I've reinstalled Final cut, Compressor, Qmaster, everything. I've reinstalled the relevent driver for the Kona card etc. Checked frame offset, done everything I can think of - No change. Really up against it here. HELP!

Hi, I am just stumbling on your posting, but we had been having this same problem and we thought it was the Kona 3 card.
what we did find was that our digitizer was noot locking onto the AJa presets we set up and the kona kept switching back to Free run in the Control panel... whenever a drift like that occurs, especially gradually, it typically means there is a Ref In/timing problem.
check your playback timeing setup in your AJA control panel and make sure you have Ref In genlock - Locked.
that may help.
I did some tests on our side and we have seen an improvement so far.
