    Setting up a vegas edit station for the first time and trying to get output to a ntsc monitor. Selected pv to ext mon, looked in the prefs and other settings. What we’re getting is the video output but it’s not locked almost looks like no genlock on an analog signal. Any ideas? Thanks – Ralph

    Preview to external monitor is for another computer monitor that is hooked up to the video card. To monitor on standard definition NTSC, you would go out via firewire and transcode the digital signal to composite or component.

    That’s exactly how we have it hooked up. We have the drive hooked up one FW Port and the deck hooked up to the other. The deck we’re using is a sony dsr-25 dvcam deck. We’re hooked up to that via bnc cables to the monitor. We’re getting a picture but it is not stable. I’m poking around the interface for some set up menus to check but so far nothing is jumping out at me. It’s not that I’m inexperienced, I work in FCP and Avid, the interface on this is just different. We’re running version 6. Any help is always appreciated.

    try setting the preview monitor option in vegas to “best full”, see if that looks better.

    I suspect that something is amioss with the interface to (or within) the dsr-25. Do you have another device to hook up instead to troubleshoot that?

    The dsr 25 works perfectly with our FCP station, I’ll try this panasonic dv2000 but there’s no deck control. It’s more likely that some setting somewhere is amiss.

    I have deck control on my DV2000 deck from Vegas.

    What are your settings, is there a machine template for this unit? We’re suspecting that may have a bum FW card. While I’m not convinced our project settings are totally correct, no matter what we do the ntsc monitor isn’t stable during playback.

    I would have to look at the deck itself. I seem to recall having to change a knob on the left side. The word “Passive” comes to mind.
