[Blase Theodore]"I'm using a Ki Pro for the first time and I'm feeding it a 24p signal which its reading as a 30i signal and recording as 30psf? "
The KiPro is going to record whatever video signal your camera is sending out. Not all cameras can directly capture and playback 23.98. 720p records 23.98p in a 59.94p stream for instance.
If you need the signal to record as PsF (which is only possible with 1080 captures) you will need to confirm that setting in the MENU 1.1 is for PsF- recording set to "Normal" will capture the file as 60i not 29.97 sf.
did you read the quickstart guide?

I had that problem as well. The camera was set to record 1080psf23.98, but the SDI output only does 29.97, so that's what the Ki Pro saw. I verified to make sure it wasn't the Ki Pro's fault by sending out a signal from my Kona card and it saw the 23.98psf just fine. Camera manufacturers scream and holler about what frame rates/sizes they record, but never make mention about what their outputs (SDI, component) can do.
