We have had good luck using the down converted output
(UDC) of the Panasonic D5 machine.  The D5 UDC and the
external Panasonic UFC both have a consistent delay,
and should give repeatable 3/2 results if the TLC
trims are set up properly.  There should be other
converters that will also work well. There is one
popular converter starting with the letter "T" that
does not produce consistent 3/2 results (even in
"cadence correction mode").

Insert standard disclaimer here.
