Switch between DF to NDF when capturing Downconverted HDV to DV on a from a SONY HVR-M15E

Hi all, I've been experiencing some problem more than once, I don't know if it is the VTR or Final Cut Pro, I asked the cameraman to shoot in HDV DropFrame format and he did, when I want to capture in HDV there is no problem, the timecode shows as follows 00:23:17;13 (DF), but when I activate the i-link conversion on the Deck, the timecode on my log and capture window starts off with DF (00:20:24;00) and suddenly switches to NDF (00:20:34:00), I don't know what the problem is. I've also tried to setup the configuration of the DECK to DF instead of auto and it still happens. Could anyone please he. I am capturing on my AJA Kona 3 card Apple ProRes 422(HQ) through the Component output on my SONY HVR-M15E through a HD10A converter and feeding timecode and audio through Firewire.

Thanks

The problem you are seeing lies with how the video was recorded. When recording HDV on Sony Camcorders, the cameras default to AUTO in the timecode section. That means it will switch back and forth from NDF to DF between clips and n=most of the time clips are recorded at NDF.

You have to have the cameras set to DF or NDF if that's what you need.

The only solution is to wade thru the errors until you have everything captured OR you will have to set your M15U deck to DF or NDF timecode also then dub you tapes to new tapes.
