NF - SDI start/stop flags

I do a lot of two camera shoots with either Sony PMW-350s or Pana AF-102s and NF recorders.

As we want matching timecodes on both cameras we shoot time of day, freerun TC which means that the NF recorders have to be triggered to record separately from the camera record. Usually this isn't a great problem but there has been instances of failing to roll both or stop recording - all human error, even with tally lights.

On a recent shoot a colleague turned up with a Hyperdeck that uses start/stop flags that are apparently embedded in the SDI stream to roll his recorder.

Is this something that can be added to the NanoFlash?
