Jason - get a tape head cleaner. I know the camera is new, but possibly something inadvertently got in there and is causing trouble. It's possible you got some bad tapes, but I'd find that a remote possibility.
The DR-HD100 is an awesome tool. Just take the time to learn it well. We shoot hundreds of hours of 2 camera studio shoots onto them backed up with tape. The tape is the only archive kept of raw footage. The drives are used to edit the projects but only the end product is digitally archived. The only issues we've had have been user related. In sync mode it is possible to record only to the tapes if the operator gets so jaded that they ignore the usual signal flow in the viewfinder. It is extra setup, and a bulkier rig which can make it less practical in certain applications, but it transforms the camera.
