XL2- white balance with DVC200

I am part of a local public access cable channel in the town where I live. We recently purchased an XL2, and have been generally happy with it. The only problem is that the XL2, when white balanced on the same surface as a Panasonic DVC200, gives a much redder color than the DVC.

What would people reccomend to fix this problem?

Go into the menus and you should be able to dial down the red a little. Word of wisdom, since you likely have them onhand, use a high quality production monitor to setup one cam to the other, don't use the viewfinders. Not that you didn't know that allready.
