XM2, and frame mode frame order..

Hi all. I use an XM2 and Vegas video for my NLE and when setting up a project you can select the frame order of the video. Now I was wanting to do some tests in the XM2 frame mode and was wondering what setting I should use for my project? Normally the DV is done on Lower Field First, but should I use the Progressive option? The help for that option says if you're viewing it on computer use progressiver otherwise use the normal (Lower) one.

From what I know of the Canon's Frame mode, it stil stores everything interlaced but the snapshots are taken (Almost at one point in time, rather than 1/50 of a second apart) so I would have thought just sticking with Lower would be the best.

For those of you who use Frame mode and Vegas (And I assume it's the same in other NLE's that why I posted here), what do you guys use and could you clear it up for me?

Use progressive for frame mode footage and lower for interlaced

In Vegas I'm using progressive/none for my XL1s frame mode
