Do you have a TC reader or a scope you can connect to the TC line at the Namedropper end to verify signal presence/quality?

We feed ours with timecode and I don't recall having too much trouble with setup, although it has been almost 10 years ago. I will try to remember to look up our setup when I get back from vacation next week.
Same here. We have two Namedroppers in our hub facility, and they have never failed to read time code -- and we've gone from Leitch master clocks to ESE to Evertz. Unless something has changed in the last few months, Namedroppers don't read VITC; they just use incoming video as a frequency reference to increment the internal UTC clock more accurately.
