Exactly i use too the monitor out on the side of the camera for the time code burn in.

I did some further test with a new unit, same problem.

What the editing guy wanna do with it is doin a pre editing with the footage recorded on the Nano flash and after, relink the in/out with the tape. Of course to be able to do such both time code tape and nano must be the same. im no editing specialist thats about the way i understand it.

I did a recording test again, this time i did a record of a scriplink the have an accurate visual reference. the time code displayed by the scriplink come from the HDX900 itself.

I did a log and transfer into FCP from the firewire output of the HDX900.
and imported the QT clips from the Nano to FCP.

The timecode displayed from the tape differ next to the QT clips from the Nano.

The pre record fonction in the HDX is switched off. so the problem doesnt come from there.

ill try to persuade my client to record only with the NanoFlash and forget about the tape.
Maybe the Nano wasnt meant to be use with the tape time code as reference.

By curiousity ill perform hte same test with a Focus Enhancements FS-100 to see if the same problem occure

Thanks for your support :-)

It is a little distressing to hear of this issue. I haven't had to deal with that yet, but I'll investigate it to see if I have the same problem. Thanks for the heads-up!
