Indeed - you just need to locate either the material package of file package, then iterate the tracks looking for the timecode track (and decide what to do if more than one). Then the format of this track is pretty easy to follow. This will let you locate the start and end edit units from your required timecode. If you are comfortable writing C++ code at the level required for manipulating MXF files I would expect that the task will not be too hard. Please let me know if you need any help with specific parts.
