I am trying to convert my HDV footage to Standard on to the Mac computer using FCP 6. I looked on the manual pg 109 and did the set up. I have it on VCR mode and going through the menu. When I plugged the firewire cable into the camera both the PLAYBACK STD and HD DOWN_CONV grayed out and was not able to use the function. I unpluged the firewire cable and it showed up and was able to modify it. Not sure what I missing here. It also did the same thing on my other computer a PC.
