Is there a clock or live timestamp plugin for the Tricaster Pro?

I work for a public access TV station here on Maui (Akaku: Maui Community TV) and we have just purchased a Tricaster Pro from Paul Ehman. One of the major needs of our productions is that we record the time/date live on the video as a timestamp. We currently use Videonics and Compix for our CGs and they both have a timestamp option, but we would like to totally move away from them and just use the Tricaster's CG.

I would also like to know if there are any plugins or the like to have a timestamp appear via the TriCaster Pro. We are using a Horita VS-50 for this purpose right now but it is not ideal for our situation. We stream and record to hard drive and would like there to be a timestamp on the video for editing purposes. Any help in this matter would be great. Thanks!

There's no immediate solution for a live timestamp, but in the editor you can drop in this one hour timecode overlay (ftp://ftp.newtek.com/pub/VideoToaster/Downloads/TCdf1.zip).
