Can the HV20 output its lcd timecode over composite out?

am deciding on the hv20 or a sony hc-3 but leaning towards the canon.

but one thing I have to have is the ability to output the lcd screen overlay (timecode specifically) from the composite or dv output of the camera in downconverting mode.

I have an HV30 not an HV20 but they are basically the same. Is this what you mean? PAL manual p41:

Quote:
TV SCREEN
[ ON]*, [ OFF]
When set to [ ON], the camcorder’s
on-screen displays will appear also on the
screen of a connected TV or monitor.
���� You can also use on the wireless
controller.
���� When the the data code is displayed on
the camcorder’s screen, the same
information will also appear on a
connected TV regardless of the [TV
SCREEN] setting. Turn off the data code
display by repeatedly pressing .
* The default value is [ OFF] in the
playback modes.

6SEC.DATE
[ ON], [ OFF]
When you start playing back a tape or
when the date of the recording changes,
the date and time will be displayed for 6
seconds.
The time code is usually embedded in the DV signal (haven't checked the HV20) but I don't know how you would display it.
