Hello all!!  I've gone through all of the menu settings on the varicam and I cannot figure out how to send timecode to another camera for the life of me!!  Is there some setting or sub menu combination that I am not aware of?

WOW I'm a dork that really needs to cut back on the coffee and slow down a bit!!  Searching menus on-site makes for weird mistakes and oversights!!  So that no one makes the same dork mistake I did.  Hit the Menu button go to "Rec Settings" then to "TC" to "TC In/out sel"the select "TC in".  Navigate back to the menu, this time going into "system settings" to "Genlock" to "Genlock Mode" to "EXT" and sync up your genlock signals.  From there for whatever reason you still have to enter the external timecode from the "In/Out" terminal.  Whew!!! glad we were able to pull TC from the other camera to as a fix for this random spaz out!!
