Cineform 24p HDV capture question

Hello
New, Using Sony FX1000 set to 24p mode with Cineform Neo4k and HDLink to capture video stream via firewire. I understand selecting "remove 3-2 pulldown" on HD Link and Aftereffects cs4 recognizes the video stream as 23.976 progressive. Editing no problems, looks great. Question. Is there a way to tell if a tape was recorded in 24p mode or 60i mode. Some of the tapes I have are not clearly logged as 24p. I understand that all HDV is 60i so if I have a unmarked tape can I just capture it as 60i and not select "remove 3-2 pulldown" and treat it as HDV60i? I guess in other words if you don't know if a HDV tape has telecine embedded can you ignore it? Thanks everyone

With HDV (other Canon Pro cameras) 24p can be treated as 60i. Although is it better to remove pulldown if it has it, we can't automatically detect that.
