Hopefully you aren't using FCP, these are the last two responses from Sony:

1)"The TC is embedded in the data stream but FCP does not pick it up during the transcode process. This is expected to be fixed in a future FCP or Pro Application Support update. Unfortunately we have no time frame for this. "

Hope this is helpful...

2)"It's a new camera and furthermore one that evolved out of a consumer format (AVCHD). You may want to consider a different pro model like the EX1R or HVRZ7; these have full TC support within all the major NLEs." I contacted Apple Final Cut support, they don't even have the camera on the radar so looks like it's not being addressed. Furthermore was informed if it is a new camera under 6 months old they have to purchase one in order to check compatibility issues.

that being said, if you're using Final Cut your SOL in eyes of Sony- actually same goes for Vegas users as of now. When asked about issues with Vegas response was "That's correct and is also being addressed, most likely in the next 'dot' release of Vegas Pro."

good times
