Description

Summary of the bug:

I'm able to get several of the timecode_formats options for the decklink device to work but have never gotten any input via the 'serial' timecode option, although other decklink tools can access this data.

How to reproduce:

I have an UltraStudio Express card with a remote RS422 cable set up for deckcontrol and timecode.

With the deckcontrol app at https://github.com/bavc/deckcontrol/blob/61616bb599a4458697d6e2d36d60a940a21ea3b6/deckcontrol.cpp#L267-L275, I can access the timecode over serial like this:

% deckcontrol gettimecode

Issued command 'gettimecode'
TC=02:05:39:11
Command sucessfully issued
Error sending command (No error)

But with ffmpeg, I only get an N/A value for timecode.

% ffprobe -f decklink -timecode_format serial -format_code ntsc -video_input composite -audio_input analog -i 'UltraStudio Express' -show_streams
