DVCpro deck via firewire to Avid MC

I have a project that starts shooting this Friday (2/26) that was originally going to a P2 card. They have changed cameras and are now going with the SDX900 from what I can tell uses a DVC tape and that the decks are firewire. The producer said that they would rent me a deck so my questions are as follows:
What deck is the best for this? I have read about the AJ-SD930 but my concern is digitizing in to the Avid. This is my first project at my home edit bay and my CPU is a Mac Pro with a NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT video card running Media Composer 3.5. I don't have a mojo or adrenaline or nitris box so I would have to use the firewire for digitizing. Which leads me to my next question.
Does Avid support this kind of digitizing and will it bring in timecode? I know digital cuts are not frame accurate but my main concern is digitizing. I was wondering if I can do this or do I have to book time and dig at a post house?
Thanks so much for any input.
