Capture problems with Sony deck

I seen that someone wrote a similar post below, but I'd like to see how this can and if theres a resolution. I spent a good chunk of money, of which it is hard to come by to purchase the Canon XL1. Actually got it from the classifieds on the Cow. I love it, and have no other problems except for this. I'm in New Orleans shooting for a company in L.A. They've been saying how they have problems capturing from the tapes I shot. I have no problems, but I'm using an old camera as my capture deck. In L.A. they are using a Sony deck.

Is there any resolution for this? I just don't get what the problem would be.

Thanks!

Todd

...same problem I've (been having) with my XL2 and SONY DSR 20 deck- When I enabled DV control on camera (which is supposed to allow you to use camera as controllable device), playback on my SONY deck was fine - If dv control not enabled, I get stutters, dropped frames, slurred audio....works for me...

Hmm...I don't see anything on my XL1 that says DV control?

There is nothing in the user manual about it. DV control in the xl2 is used when you are recording from a connected device. Why this would have anything to do with how the xl2 records to tape is beyond me. What changes when you turn this feature off confuses me. By the way, I have had these kind of problems with an XL2 (i'll try the fix above), an optura xi, and a couple of zr 80s. The xl1 manual does say to connect the firewire cable to the cam first. It's very frustrating.
