Does anyone know exactly how FCP detects the "Tape Trouble" alert when capturing via deck control. I have one Panasonic PRO 50 VTR that seems to be consistent in causing this alert, though the deck itself is offering no warnings.
Does FCP sense this fault through the RS 422 connection, or does it look for continuity through the SDI video input.
I should mention that I am using an AJA IO as the intermediary.
Ultimately I am trying to locate the fault in the VTR, if I use another VTR I don't see any fault notices from FCP.
Any information would be appreciated.
In my setup, I have had to have a VHS deck running its video signal into my BetaCam deck. When capturing from the BetaCam deck, I have to turn the VHS deck off, otherwise a "Tape Trouble" alert appears. Perhaps this is caused by a sync video error? See if that helps narrow down the issue.
