Arri Alexa XT Plus issue with Tentacle sync box

6.49K viewsHardwarearri alexa xt plus


I had some issues¬†using Tentacles Boxes on Arri Alexa XT Plus. In EXT TC and Regen, in 5-10 minutes, the camera showed: system error broken timecode. And the camera needs a restart… and, obviously, unable to use my tentacles boxes for the rest of the day

is normal? Cause I had some collegues with the same issue¬†with the same camera…

my boxes are with the last firmware and the camera firmware is 11.0.1

Can you help me?

Kind regards,


Jordi Salinas
