    Hi Chris,

    I believe your Hippos are all programmed into the Hogs and timecode will trigger the show.

    In this case, you need send Midi Timecode from your source to your Hog 3 via a midi cable. I would advise that individual midi cable from the source to both the main and backup console. Hog 3 does not accept LTC unless you have external LTC widgets.

    Hope this helps.

    Since you are planning to send midi timecode out from your PM5D, you just need to program both light and video cues to timecode, run your midi out from the PM5D to a midi splitter and connect them to your consoles midi in. In this way, lights and video are sync to audio.
