Ardour doesn't chase TC all by itself. Something needs to send it a
"Start" command (e.g. using MMC). Its arguable that it should have the
option of "chasing" any varying TC (i.e. once TC starts to move, we
just assume that the transport should start). I think I have that
right :) Please be more specific about how you set up Ardour as an MTC
slave in terms of Ardour's own options.

Slaving has some problems right now but they are not hard to solve,
they just require time spent close to a MTC source.

Ron Parker has used his DM24 with MMC to control Ardour. Seems to work
