Thanks for the DUC link. Is that how you are doing it?
yes, this is how i'm doing it. It works GREAT.
Here are the specific instructions that I received from someone a lot smarter than I...
You'll need to convert the SMPTE BNC to a 1/4 inch to feed to the DTP SMPTE Input.
The BNC with video will plug into the DTP Video In BNC connector.
The Word 1x BNC on the DTP will feed with a 75 ohm BNC to BNC cable to your Presonus Word Clock input.
The S/PDIF out of the DTP will feed to the S/PDIF in of the 002/R with a 75 Ohm RCA to RCA S/PDIF cable. (optional since the Presonus will have the DTP clock too)
The MIDI 1 Out of the DTP will feed to the MIDI In of the 002/R with a MIDI cable.
In Pro Tools 7 in the Setup menu -> Peripherals... On the Synchronization page select Generic MTC reader and set it to the MIDI In port of the 002/R.
In the Pro Tools Session Setup Window set the clock source to S/PDIF or ADAT. (You can use either since the clock source is ultimately the DTP if you've hooked up the S/PDIF as above).
Make sure the session start time is earlier than the code they're sending you.
On the DTP set the source to Video and SMPTE. Set the rate to the correct setting (48kHz I would imagine). The format to 29.97 (or whatever you require).
In the Pro Tools Session Setup Window match the frame rate setting.
Put the Presonus on external word clock
Put Pro Tools online (Option+spacebar or Command+J)
If you have incoming LTC/SMPTE Pro Tools should start chasing it in synch.
