more timecode trouble
This is sort of a related question. I'm getting ready to post a documentary. I'll be using a JVC BR-DV600 as the source deck for a Media 100 LX-that's how I'll do the offline. I don't want to use the original tapes, naturally, so I thought I'd make a copy from the XL1 to the JVC. Problem is, I can't figure out how to make the time code on the copy exactly the same as the original. Can anyone help me on this? I've tried everything I can think of, including using firewire, but I can't make it work. Thanks

Short of using professional gear in the copy process that preserves time code, you could try to make the copy as an assemble edit to a recorder that has a tape in it with some existing time code. For this an editor that can control both devices accurately is good to have.

ALtenatively queue the recorder and player to the proper frame offsets then roll them at the same time. It may take several tries to get the copy to start at the precise same frame number. But it is easy to hit it within a frame or two.
