I would like to use my Toaster and Amiga computer as a live switcher for taping a meeting. I can get one camera input to work fine but the second has distorted video. I was told that this was a sink problem and that this was common with the units. Is there an adjustment in the Toaster settings that will allow me to input more than one camera so that I can use the system as a live switcher? I use s-video inputs in the system.

My Toaster version is 4.1 on an Amiga 2000. The Amiga was upgraded several years ago when I went from 3.0 to 4.1.

It is a sync issue. There is nothing wrong with your Toaster. The Toaster requires that all its sources be in sync. This is commonly done by using a blackburst generator to input into each camera. Another way is to output each camera into a TBC, where each TBC is synced together.
