The first request is a playlist feature for the DDR. Normally the sports productions I do have a show open, close, and a half time show. Nine times out of ten the halftime show is made of 3 to 5 videos and I normally get them with less then 10 minutes to air. Before the TC40 I would have 3 DDRS set-up on my VT5 to handel the work load... Open and close on DDR3, halftime video or promos on DDR1, and music on DDR2. Being able to put some videos in a self contant playlist would make my life easier.

The second request is auto proc-amp calibrations for all incoming anolog imputs. This is a feature from the VT5 I love having. It's become second nature to set all my cameras to bars and use the auto feature on the VT5 to make sure I get a near-perfect signal. I just can't see why this little item was left out of the TC40.

I don't have a TC40, only a Tricaster Studio, however I can highlight 3 clips in the DDR and choose the LIST option and they play one after another as a playlist. I take it that this is not an option on the TC40?

TriCaster 40 does have Playlist presets, just like its siblings. Roll them mouse over to the edge of the screen, or break open the manual. ;)

I have and I can't seem to bring it up. Could this be due to the build I have?

that's possible, yes. You might want to log in and install the "Latest" build from downloads.

I have build "rev 5b" and that looks like it's the latest build. Should I install the one from the download page?

Hmmm. According to what I can find out here right now (lunch time), 5c should appear any time now. Please check again later in the day, or tomorrow.

OK, but back to my first post auto proc-amp calibrations would be great to have.

Did the rev 5c update and I now have the playlists.

The 5b shipped with the TC 40 is not the same as the 5b you download. The download version adds the presets.
