Timecode drift.

I just did a wireless sync and did a screenshot,
It’s not always the same one but they are off by one frame.
Is it because of the screenshot that it’s not accurate?

Hey Julien!
Thanks for reaching out to us!
The displayed timecode in the setup app can not be shown as accurate and stable as the timecode of the Tentacles TC-output really is: It depends on the Bluetooth signal, the screen-refresh-time of your smartphone and other “crumpy latency dwarfs”.
So, the offset you’ll see when you do a screenshot is normal. And you do not have to worry about that: The Tentacles themself are perfectly in sync. You can prove that i.E. by filming the blinking SyncE-LED in HFR slow motion.
