External Monitor --has the pukes!

OK, I've got a project in FCP4 - wanting to monitor it
externally...I'm firewired into a Sony DVMC-DA2 then RCA'd into
a Sony Trinitron monitor.

From the timeline, the 1st frame shows up on the monitor then
freezes (as the timeline continues to play in FCP)

I went into othert FCP projects, and they played just fine on the
external monitor?

any idea what's up?

Hello Scott,

Well the obvious would say it's project related from your description.

If you moved the playhead forward and played from there, does it show the same symptoms?

Hi, I have a similar issue as Scott.
My external monitor only shows clips when the playhead has stopped - nothing during playback.
I'm pretty certain all my A/V settings are correct, Audio is fine, and as I say I get a picture on the monitor just not while the clip is playing.
I'm not using HD and it is not a project specific fault - this occurs across all projects.
I've seen this problem posted quite a lot across the Net, but have not found an answer yet - hopefully someone here can help.

I'm not using FCP (I use FCE), but when I don't have everything rendered my external monitor only shows still frames when the clip/timeline is stopped. If you've applied a filter to the master clip and not rendered it, you'll get the same thing. Don't know if this will help or not, just a thought.
