Client dubs with TC window

Anyone got any thoughts on how I can easily output programes to a DVD recorder with a TC display. Do I have to record to my XDcam deck and then to the DVD recorder via composite. It all seems very cumbersome

What is your source material?

Are you using Media 100 i or HD? In Media 100 HD there is a relatively easy workaround for this: What we have done is we rendered a 1 hour TC overlay clip from AE (using the AE Text->TimeCode filter) into a heavily compressed codec with Alpha (I think we used Animation at a very low data rate). Now if we need a TC overlay we just put the TC window clip on the highest empty V track and play it out. Usually no rendering is required, and espeically if it is only for an early approval version this usually is fine with our clients.
But of course it would be nice to have a TC overlay window as part of the functionality of Media 100.

The source is XD SD, and that's a nice workaround, I'll give it a try, thanks
