Hello guys!

I have a small problem I would like to share with the forum. About two months ago, I started experiencing overlapping of pictures with flickering. This usually happens at random without even touching anything. The only way it stops is if the MAIN INPUT is the same as the PREVIEW. So basically, you'd see the PGM Out on both inputs (the MAIN INPUT and the PREVIEW input). When we restart the machine, it returns back to normal. Here's exactly what's on our inputs...

1 - PLAYBACK WINDOWS MACHINE (VGA card with TV Out)
2 - PLAYBACK WINDOWS MACHINE (VGA card with TV Out)
3 - Studio Input (Second VT4's PGM Out)
4 - Mini DV player
5 - Mini DV player
6 - PLAYBACK WINDOWS MACHINE (VGA card with TV Out)
7 - Decoder
8 - Decoder

Do you think this problem has anything to do with GENLOCK?

We had flickering issues in the past when using an external monitor from the preview source (preview out of SX84 into external monitor.) When we disabled preview out in the preferences of VT-4 the flickering went away. Has something to do with 32-bit.
