Trouble with 1080p on my TC1

Hello.
We are having trouble with our Sony PXW-X70 cameras and the 1080p signal. We have new Roland 3g-sdi cables that work with other cameras. But we only have black screen on the tc1 with our sony cameras. Does anyone have the same problem?

We have the same cameras without an issue. What setting to you have on the inputs on the Tricaster?
What output settings do you have on the camera?

3G-SDI signals can be in 'Level A' or 'Level B' formats. Sony often defaults to Level B, while most other products use Level A (like NewTek products). Check the camera setting to change the output to Level A.

OK, Output is at SDI 1080p and recording is xavc 1080p50mbs.

input on tricaster is auto or same as output on camera.

Need to find the level A button on the Sony Camera.

Go to your video out settings, set it to 1080i. It will show up them. If I have mine set at 1080p, it doesn't show up, even in an 1080p session. Set at 1080i it will show up in a 1080p session. Crazy, but it's worked that way for me for years. Oh, we're on AE2

I have to edit most of what we shoot anyway, so if I need no fields as the end product, I just render out the edit that way. You can also record an .mp4 from the tricaster if you want. I'm more of a make it work then technical minutiae guy. If it adds an extra step is better than it not working.
