How to capture a Sony Z1 down-converted HDV to DV signal in PPro1.5.1?
 
Hello again HDV folks and sorry for so many posts in such a short period of time!

For the Sony Z1, how do you down-convert from HDV to DV and output that signal to a NLE system (or can you)? My understanding (which could be completely wrong), is that when one does the following:

- set the VCR HDV/DV menu is to “Auto” or “HDV”
- set the i.Link CONV menu to “ON”

…that the camera is now set to output a DV signal from a tape that has recorded an HDV signal.

I am also assuming that:

-the iLink lamp (on the iLink connector) should light-up the “DV” light, because it’s outputting a DV signal (but it doesn’t)…should it do this?

- Since it’s outputting a down-converted DV signal, I should be able to capture the down-converted clip in a standard (NTSC) DV preset mode in Premiere Pro 1.5.1, but I get an error message from the camera when I try. Should I be able to do this?

Another Problem:

- if the camera is set to down-convert (as mentioned above), Cineform’s HDLink and WinXP Pro Device Manager do not recognize the camera.


What am I doing wrong? How do you capture a down-converted signal!?!

Cheers!
