Pro Tools & Cubase looping

Today I set up Cubase on a spare computer synced to Pro Tools and it worked great. My intention is to use Cubase for MIDI sequencing and hosting soft synths and Pro Tools for audio, editing and mixing.

Cubase is the MMC master
Pro Tools is the MTC master

I hit play on Cubase and Pro Tools starts up and send MTC to Cubase, all is great except one thing!

Just for example, I set the loop in Cubase to 8 bars, bar 71-79, I hit play in Cubase and Pro Tools starts at bar 71 but when it gets to bar 79 it just carries on while Cubase loops back to bar 71.

Is there any way to get Pro Tools to follow the looping in Cubase?

Is there some sort of song position pointer or something?

Do you have the MIDI Clock Preferences in Cubase set to:
MIDI Clock Follows Project Position and the rest turned off?

I did try that but it didn't make any difference, although I'm not sure if everything else was switched off.

I'll check again when I get a chance although thinking about it, it's Pro Tools that needs to follow Cubase' project position so I guess that won't work.

I essentially want Pro Tools to be 'invisible' and just follow whatever Cubase does.

Set "Always Send Start Message" off.
