    How does this feature actually work, and what does it do?

    me too, timecode is an audio signal, and fb4 is connected to the network, I don't understand how it can receive tc

    Setup example.

    In a "stand alone" setup where multiple FB4's are on the same network, and these FB4's need to play the same show, the FB4's will need to stay in sync. This only goes for when there is a timeline show playing directly from the SD card. So when there is no PC in use.

    You can set 1 FB4 as master by placing it in autoplay mode, the others as slave. Then all will stay and play in sync.

    but then if I have to set one in auto play mode and the others in slave mode why is there the timecode button?
