Dears all,
i get a problem only in 9.1.
It's simple :
I have a video with tc burned in.
I perfect match frame rate etc.
But : the film is not matching the logic session.
Example :
Measure 10 -> tc 02:00:00:20 ( tc on video and Logic perfect )
Moving forward 3/4 measures
Back on the measure 10 = the previous tc on video is different in terms of 3/4 fps : the tc in Logic is
Opening the same in Logic 9.02 = all is ok.
Anyone ?

    The first thought is check the frame rate in both projects. Window burn is just a frame rate number, it won't tell logic what to do. You need to set the sync settings in logic to match the frame rate of the window burn. Go to Project Setting>Synchronization>Frame Rate. Hope this helps. PC.

    As has already been said, don't trust the video burn numbers. SMPTE is an audio signal (I assume it's SMPTE) and the video tape could have been re-striped. T/C burn is great when it's accurate, but I've run across situations where it simply isn't.

    And one more thing . . . are you speaking of a Q/T video or actual tape? If it's tape of some sort, unless you have a very expensive video machine, Logic should be following (slaved to) the video.
