With HDV you are best to run FW into the mac from the very camera that shot the HDV. Edit only on the mac (with camera/deck disconnected), and then reconnect the deck to run HDV out over FW for a final "monitor online pass." You can do that at SD or HD with the deck/camera down converting the video to SD. I HAD a sony "Broadcast Grade" LCD HD for two weeks, on-lined one show and the client was so discussed with the blacks/color that I had to comp them a new online. I have found that for color, the SD down converts are fine, but for motion graphics, nothing beats even a low cost native HDTV. I now have a sony HD CRT BC monitor now, and two $1000 Samsung CRT HDTVs. Be aware that the consumer CRT HDTVs will only be 1080i although some can up-convert 720p (looks soft). LCD/Plasma TVs are only 720p and look soft with 1080i high motion.
