Before HDV can be put to tape it must be conformed because of the GOP structure. And with a video as long as yours it very well may take that long to conform.
If you will be working in HDV do yourself a favor and learn about the format especialy the GOP structure that is what can make HDV a burden to work with, but it is also what keeps it from costing a ton of $$ like shooting in other HD formats.
There was a great artical about HDV in Final Cut Pro in the Oct issue of the Creative Cow Magazine check it out.

Agreed, working in HDV native myself conforming is a real killer. Its turning out to be one of those set it and forget it, take a nap, get some coffee type of thing. Best bet is to keep each timeline under 30-45 mins. That helps protecting you from HDV output crashes.
I've just rendered a 60 min HDV project, and it took 5 hrs on a P4 3.5ghz machine using Premiere Pro 1.51 with AspectHD 3.2. I can't believe that FCP on a Mac takes so long. Any input from other Mac users on this issue?

I am trying to record an HDV project back to tape. Form FCP Studio 6.0
to my hvr25 deck via firewire.
I have tried every setting under the sun. When I print to tape it conforms then says click OK when you are ready. IT starts the deck recording but no video.
