We have three cameras into the toaster, one of which has a longer cable. When we bring up a camera onto the preview bus it takes a second for the signal to "tune in". Is there a way to fix this with a timing setting or would boosting the signal with a DA work? We need to be able to bring up our preview very quickly without the lag time."

Do you have a spare TBC laying around that you could feed that camera through (and lock it [TBC] up to the VT) ?

Is it all the cameras lag, or just the one with the longer cable?

Are there any locking problems on the program bus, or only preview?

Camera 3 is the longest cable that seems to be the one that has the most problem. What happens is when I hit the preview button on the rs-8 the image is distorted like it is out of horizontal sync, then tunes itself in. I am used to it being a lot snappier. I will try some different cabling today as well as passing it thru something else first.

just curious, How long is the cable run to your CAM3???
