You could probably get away with splitting the signal, for short runs, but if this were in our shop, we'd first feed the output of the TBC to a video distribution amplifier (VDA) and then feed monitors and other devices from that.

Use the blue gun to adjust the monitor to your eye, based on actual bars being played out of the source machine. Use the scopes that come with your editing software and you should be close enough for jazz, considering the format you're working with. You're trying to improve the signal, not become a Hollywood transfer house, after all.

Where setups like this most often fall down, IMO, is when they try to play a JPEG file generated out of a camera memory and not actual bars that went thru the camera lens. That file has little correlation to what the camera or tape machine puts out.
