    That you Time Of Day has changed or is out of sync with incomming LTC.

    These airspeeds are hyper sensitive with LTC signal issues and depending or your time distribution scheme the amount LTC and the pc's clock can drift which leads to all kinds of weird warnings and errors

    Re: Avid airspeed 5500 TOD timecode

    Thank you for your info , but it is a strange thing that the server time is synced with domain controller time ! is it recommanded to create NTP server instead from sync with server time ?

    Re: Avid airspeed 5500 TOD timecode

    I would first check the airspeed is correctly reading the incoming ltc.

    A simple test I do is to hook up a small audio mixer to hear the ltc timecode and to be able to meassure and change the audio level. It would not be the first to time a LTC (audio) distribution amplifier is not connected correctly or is not handling symmetric/asymmtric levels corectly.

    I also download an adroid ltc generator on my android phone

    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.AaronBernstein.ltctimecodegenerator&hl=en

    and hook it up to the same mixer through the minijack headphone output. (I have also used android emulators for Pc but a phone is more practical for a temporary testing setup.)

    Now check the behavior of the airspeed while changing levels and ltc source.

    Hi again,

    To get back on this issue. On a site without LTC clock and adrienne cards we also see this warning without it making sense.

    I'm checking if the lack of LTC in general is considered a warning state resulting in this warning or if something else is going on.

    Yes you are correct. The warning is to let you know that there is no LTC connected, and the timecode is coming from the Windows' system time.
