I have a Amiga A2000 with video toaster 3.1 installed on it.
I was having a problem with the sync of my camcorders to the video toaster.
I installed a DPS TBC III into my amiga. Now I cannot figure out how to have the two cards talk to eachother. I installed the software for the TBC and when I plug a camcorder into the back of the TBC a green light goes on but that is it. I installed the TBC software in the video toaster folder but it is then seperated in its own folder DPS III. I wanna know how to plug the camera's into the tbc and use the video toaster to edit the video. Any input is appreciated.

Well, this isn't exactly the same equipment, but it's close, and the main ports have to be there.

You need to pass the video through the TBC. Run your video from your camcorder into one of the inputs on the TBC (top BNC for composite or the mini-DIN for Y/C) and run the output of the TBC (second BNC) into input 1 on the Video Toaster card. You select between the comp and Y/C inputs using the TBC software but for this to work you need to run a cable from the Amiga serial port to the RJ connector on the TBC III or from and internal header inside the 2000 to the RS-232 connector on the top edge of the TBC card. The dip switches on the TBC should all be in the UP position.

Actualy, if you expect to be able to EDIT video, you will need a Flyer. All a Video Toaster can do is switch 4 video sources (With a huge number of different transitions), paint box, character generator, Lightwave, and Croma-effects.
