    Two frames off in which direction, José?

    Is your audio ahead of your video by 2 frames? Or behind it?

    Synced audio and video entering TC should still be in sync on output. This has been exhaustively tested, naturally, and was found to be right on the money. That said, out of an abundance of caution as well as a high regard for our users, re-testing is queued up (which will save me doing it - cool!)

    I need to look at the Pro res clips again and get back to you but from what I remember, the audio was ahead by two frames.

    Where were you capturing downstream ProRes, José?

    Interesting, thanks. I can't see any reason that should be off, but have you tried direct analog capture just for comparison? And what sort of test helped you arrive at the two frame offset? Clapper? Other? (Feel free to take this offline if you want to get into the nitty gritty).

    I have not had the problem hear in the studio with my cell phone parked on top of the XD.

    Interesting. Would you sacrifice your Multiview for audio purposes?
    I would like to have both how about a drop down menu with the choice of Multiview or Audio mixer. I really do see a need to have the Mixers or audio control surface to complement the CS

    Thanks. Personally, given those last two options, I'd take a physical control surface, but I get your idea.

    We are seeing an extreme lip syncing problem on the *recorded* content from our 850. After recording a show, playback in either DDR shows it. Bringing the mpg file into Speed Edit shows it as well.

    Very frustrating as I've sent files to NewTek and they tell me they don't see the problem.

    Scott, I'd be happy to check for you, too, if you could record a short test clip. A clear recording of a close up of hands clapping could serve, in a pinch. Direct from camera to TriCaster, of course.

    Time flies when everyone is busy, I guess. We did do some related testing, but more is in the pipe. Keep bugging me ....

    The sudden monitor switching, or powering off is something I've never seen, except when you first turn on the system. I have a TCXD300 on top of my 850 for demo purposes, and I often wind up plugging the monitors in the wrong port, and they have to reset their resolution. I've also seen cases there plugging in a second monitor will switch which input was on the previously plugged in monitor. These are technically NewTek problems, but I believe It's just the interaction between the NVidea card and the way Tricaster deals with it.

    If the switch happened in the middle of a production, I'd first suspect cabling, then perhaps the Nvidea card.

    As far as the lip sync issue: I have sold more than 30 of the systems, and personally test every one, and have never seen a sync issue. (in a production model...I did have some issues with the Beta units.)
