I'd like to add that you should be sure to listen to the audio *at the camera*. Get a good pair of headphones (Sony 7506 or Senn 280 are the board favorites). Just because the meters on the GL2 aren't clipping doesn't mean that the audio isn't (trust me, I made that mistake... once).

I usually stack two 20db pads (total of 40db on one channel) on my GL2 when using a mixer feed. I may or may not use the built-in attenuator. Also, as far as I know the only input in camera mode is the mic mini-jack (I think the A/V jack on the back is an output in this mode).
There's no way for you to know if what I'm saying is true unless you know what the truth is, and there's no way for you to know what the truth is unless there is a truth that you can know. -- Frank Peretti
