Has anybody gotten this machine to work with the Kona2 RS-422 port? I have gotten it to work only a couple of times and then it will loose connection throughout the batch digitize process. I’m using FCP 5.03 (didn’t work in previous versions of FCP 5.0 either). I have the Device Control set to AJA Kona2: 29.97 Sony VTR. That is what my video settings are so I have set it to that standard. I don’t get it at all. I have to use the firewire for machine control but I’d rather use the RS-422 for better frame accuracy when searching and cueing up a shot. Can anybody help me?
“it seems that everyone is having problems with that deck”
I’ve used this deck many times via RS-422, ethernet and Firewire, and they all work fine, but RS-422 control is limited to capturing from SDI or analog only – you cannot capture via Firewire while under RS-422 control.
If you’re attempting to capture via Firewire under RS-422, I would change your setup to capture via the SDI port using whatever codec you need for your project within FCP.
