Hi all - long time lurker, first time poster.
My set up is this:
SONY AV3650 -> Leitch DPS 475 -> Blackmagic UltraStudio HD Mini -> vrecord (Mac)
I have noticed on some 1/2" open reel tapes a flagging/skew error in the top left corner in my vrecord preview that does not appear on my analog preview monitor (this signal is before the TBC). Often, on the preview monitor, there is a slight skew/flag in the opposite direction, but it is usually less dramatic than the digitized signal, as if the TBC is overcompensating in the opposite direction.
As far as I know, there is no way to adjust the skew on the TBC (the SONY obviously has a skew knob, but this usually doesn't make much of a difference).
Most tapes are fine, but the flagging is consistent on the tapes that have it.
Just wondering if anyone has any suggestions!
