Can Z1 act as a DV pass-through for monitoring?

I can't seem to get my Z1P to act as a DV pass-through so I can monitor on a TV while I edit standard definition DV in Vegas or Premiere. The DV signal shows on the camera's LCD but it won't output over the component or A/V cables to my TV. Can this be done?

Do you have your analog out set to 480 in the menu switches?

Yes Spot. Should this work?

Edit: I've found that it will monitor out on a TV over the A/V cable as long as the component cable is not plugged into the camera at the same time. It won't seem to monitor on my TV over the component cable although the same component cable and TV will happily monitor video played back from an HDV tape.
