Ive done this sort of thing after the shoot using my 1200a and the sony dvd recorder. Just used the video out with info on and connect the analog audio. Make sure the down convert is letterbox or cropped (if you are ending in 4:3 ) You can take a few minutes and put the TC window up or down in the frame. I think that doing it as you shoot will be a little cumbersome as any starts and stops during the shooting will require attention at the dvd recorder. Plus the format time and the finalization of the dvd will take real time during the shoot. I'd push for doing each of them after they are shot. You can do tape 1 while you shoot tape 2 etc. You can even put it in a different area to keep the deck fan noise to a minimum. But if you cant sell the process that way I think you can do it directly from the camera in the downconvert mode.
