Hello Heath,

Have you tried rebooting FCP while the camera is left on in VCR mode?

cheers,
Peter

It should appear on your Viewfinder, but I believe the XL1s does not support pass-through so you won't be able to get it to a TV directly from your computer using the XL1s as the converter. Double check your manual or go to the Canondv.com website...

Guess I was wrong! I always use another camera as a deck anyway... but now I know I don't have to...
