FCP/XH A1 setup for viewing HDV on TV?

Hiya.

How do I setup Final Cut Pro and the XH A1 to view my HDV sequence on an ordinary TV (as a monitor). I've been scouring the menus and whatever I can find on the forums, and I haven't been able to get it working yet...

At the moment I've got the camera plugged in via firewire, and the component out on the camera connected to the TV. I presume the camera should be on play and FCP on 'External Video: All Frames' and 'Video Playback: HDV 25p' but that last option is grayed out.

Help much appreciated... thanks, Ian

I'm on FCP 5.1.4, by the way.

I've read somewhere that you can't pass HDV back out through firewire to view on the camera from FCP. Is that true? I had this working with DV...

You can't preview HDV to an external monitor in realtime over Firewire, not like you can with DV. You need a hardware solution such as the AJA Kona LHe card to do this.
