Is live capture to FCP X possible using Sony HVR-Z1U?

I'm trying to capture live to FCP X from my Sony HVR-Z1U.

It will capture from the camera's VCR (tape) mode just fine, and I find the clip saved in the browser ready to edit. But when I switch the camera to record mode to show the live image, the image shows up in the capture window, but with a "camera not controllable" message in the dialogue box in the upper left corner of the same capture window. When I then click on import, a time counter replaces the "camera not controllable" message for a split second, then reverts to the same "camera not controllable" message. In the browser, I find a clip with a single frame.

I have tried the same procedure with a SONY HVR-Z7U, and with a Sony Handycam HDR-HC3, same results.

I have no problems at all when using FCP 7, but that's not an option on this job.

Any advice or ideas will be most appreciated.

Have you tried asking this question in the FCP X forum?
