Can I monitor in SD while loading HDV over firewire?

Experts:

We are thinking of getting a couple of these as B-camera for education production... however, our SD pipeline usually involves making a timecoded DVD as we load footage into the system. I am wondering if this camera is capable of giving any kind of SD monitoring that I could record while loading the HDV signal.

For that matter, can any camera do this? Seems like a challenge for GOP signal based compression.

Thanks for any info.

I've noticed the same thing. My Sony firewire deck plays audio to spreakers (throught an amp), yet does not send (or receive) a video picture through to a monitor when capturing nor playing back HDV footage.

I'd love to grab a SD cap right off the timeline even after capture.

Something about this format.

If I understand the question, you would like to make a DVD with timecode numbers while loading the footage into your computer with the HD1000. The answer is yes although you might not like the image on the DVD. In the menu you can choose to have the signal seen on the LCD screen routed out on the composite video port. But it is exactly the image on the LCD complete with touch screen buttons which are very large in the frame. You will get the timecode.

Excelllent - yes that was my question. Low quality is fine - we just use the SD stuff for logging and editorial purposes, and clean playback is not a priority. That's (another) fairly impressive item for this camera.
