This works well in dailies mode, but not so good when syncing  selects where
the 4025 is used to generate the master timecode.  What's needed is for
daVinci (et al) to implement a timecode generator that tracks film pulses,
(already available on the TK interface).  This could then be used to make a
DAT machine chase, while using the Evertz for the master code.

Jim, I thought the TLC mode 8 only works for Nagra, where tach pulses are
sent down the RS 422 port.  I wasn't aware that DAT machines accomadated
this feature?
