Hi Gary

I am capturing a studio's live program output. I am using AJA Deck Control application to capture. So, no, I am not connected to a deck. And I suppose there would then be no timecode captured.

The erroneous timecode displayed in the UI is still caused by a bug in AJA Deck Control and AJA TV. And both apps display "25 fps" - so they read the correct timecode standard back from the file, but they don't use it to calculate the current timecode - they use 30 fps.

Regarding Virtual VTR: I spent two weeks trying to get that app stable. Used a G5 and a Mac Pro, internal and fibre SAN, with LSe and LHe capture cards - I could not get it to capture reliably on any combination of hardware. It always dropped frames at different random intervals, while AJA deck control captured flawlessly using the same hardware. I actually bought a copy of the Virtual VTR - I still have the dongle here.

Thanks for your input
