    TC-1 External Timecode

    How do I connect external LTC timecode into the TC-1. In an older tricaster model it was an xlr audio input. Now how? Thanks in advance,

    Looks like the same way. Page 61 of the manual:

    Linear timecode has long served as a method of sharing an external timecode reference in video production.
    Output from an external timecode generator is supplied to devices in the video pipeline using a standard
    audio connection.
    Choose an LTC source in the Timecode Configuration panel, and the feature will decode time stamps from the
    audible signal, using the values for clock displays as well as embedded timecode when recording video (if
    the file format supports this). This is a great asset for post-production purposes.

    good luck!

    Thanks for the reply. I've tried putting the LTC into a 1/4 audio input jack and nothing. Will keep investigating.
    Thanks.

    You would need to assign the 1/4" input to one of the Audio Mixer inputs, and then choose that as the LTC source in the Timecode Config dialog. Just one or the other setting wouldn't work.
