Using XHA1 to transfer Super 8 home movies

I have my XHA1 pointed at the movie screen, to record old Super 8 home movies (color films, no sound).

What have you found to be the best exposure/shutter modes to do this? I want as little flicker as possible, obviously.

Since super-8 was shot at 18 FPS, the closest you can come with your camera is the 24F setting. I did some copying of movies some years ago at the standard 30 frames with very little flicker, but you should expect some. If you have occasion to copy regular 8 films, they were shot at 16 FPS, so 30 will be closest to that.
