"I'm shooting a commercial for tv, my first (as if you couldn't tell), so I called a local tv program manager and asked for specifics. One point he made clear was that the spot should be non-interlaced."

However, given the context of your program manager's statements, I believe this person is going for a film look temporaly, which on an XL1 would mean Frame Mode, or the 1/30 shutter speed on Normal Mode. My suggestion is to clarify this with him. Ask him if he is intending for the commercial to have a "film look", and if he is, I would conclude that he is asking you to shoot in frame mode, keeping in mind that other things add to a "film look", such as lighting, pan speeds*, etc.

*if you're shooting in frame mode, or in 24P/30P on a camera like the DVX100, be sure to keep your pans to a slower speed, as in no object should cross the screen faster than five seconds left-right or right-left. Unless, of course, you swish pan.
