Bob, I know you know this. You just forgot to mention that with Media Composer, you are not limited to just HDV. Any tapeless format can be ingested, and any FireWire based format can be ingested. So besides HDV, you can ingest DVCPro 100 HD, as well as XDCAM, and P2.

With the Mojo SDI, you can of course do all the SD resolutions via analog and SDI. All you are giving up is uncompressed HD, and real-time DNxHD transocding. You also wouldn't have an HD-SDI output or input. You could however, use a 2nd or 3rd monitor to watch HD in full res via a DVI port of the video card for preview. The Mojo will allow you to preview realtime down-converted HD to an SD monitor.

So you really have to ask yourself exactly what camera and format you actually plan to use. XDCAM or P2 is no problem at all. DVCPro 100 and lower, also not a problem. Media Composer with Mojo SDI is a pretty good setup.
