Hi, total noob at digitizing tapes, but I'm having a problem and hoping someone can help me out.
I'm using MacOS, and using a Sony J-30SDI deck to capture Digibeta PAL tapes through an SDI cable to go through Blackmagic Media Express. I've noticed that channels 1 & 2 have a german overlay over english, with channels 3 & 4 outputting only english. However, no matter what channels I select for audio monitoring, be it only 3 & 4 or only 3 OR 4, the digitil file that blackmagic records is always coming out with a german overlay. Can anyone help me with some insight into this? Thanks!

DO NOT try setting via "audio monitoring". You should go into the setup menu and look for "Output Mode" (item 026), and do a pass with L=Ch1,R=Ch2 and then do a second pass with L=Ch3,R=Ch4. It's all there in Chapter 2, page 3 of your manual.
BTW, if you are a noob, WHY are you starting off with DigiBeta?
