Downconvert question

I have an XL2, but am looking at the XLH1 , or the Sony Z1. With the Z1 you use the ilink down convert function and record hdv to tape ,and sd to the firestore FS4 simultaneously. Can you do the same thing with the XLH1?

5. it can downconvert footage to letterbox & crop in addition to the squeeze mode! (xlh1 only does anamorphic)

Shannon Rawls continued-

In this next quote, I assume he's talking about the XLH1, right?

" Albeit, I am happy it downconverts the HDV tapes to DV via FireWire (i am pretty bummed out that it doesnt downconvert to DV via FireWire while recording to HDV to tape) "

So I guess the conclusion is that the XLH1 will record to the FS-4 only what you're shooting to tape(hdv or sd),while the Sony can shoot hdv, record hdv to tape , but record sd to the firestore.
