I had this same problem. I first tried it with imovie but never got anywhere because of the limited preferences. Now the funny part is the import preview window in imovie played the video right but after importing is when the problem began. I then exported an XML to final cut hoping I could alter the video. What I noticed was that in the borowser window the fps were at 60??? Is there any remedy out there? How does 1080i at 60 import into imovie...is there still a problem? While using FCP 6.0.5 I could not get the video to come up in the Log and Transfer window. Then I read it takes a while. About 10 minutes later it appeared in the log and transfer window and was just right 720p 30 fps.
