he "LTCout Phase" is set by default to be in sync with playback. On Sony VTR's the menu for this is located as follows
SRW5500: Menu 618
HDW2000: Menu 617
When the same problem occurs with serial timecode it may be corrected on SR-4/RM-6 Software using the Edit Offset Menu
Setup | Root | IFACE | General | Menu 77 Edit Offset
The Edit Offset is added only when tracks on the VTR are armed and only needs to be set once.
