Importing a DNxHD .mov without gamma shift

This question might belong in the "basics" forum?

I have a QuickTime movie, created with Avid on a PC, using the DNxHD codec. When I open it in QuickTime Player on a PC, the colours are fine, but when I import it into Final Cut on a Mac, the colours are a lot brighter- gamma shift, apparently.

I'm looking at the result on a calibrated broadcast monitor through the HD-SDI output of a BlackMagic card, which I believe means I can't blame it on the monitors.

Changing the User Preference for how RGB video is handled gamma-wise doesn't appear to make any difference?

Googling for 'gamma' and terms like 'PC', 'Mac', etc. turns up a lot of frustrated people with gamma shift problems, but I didn't spot a solution.

How can I get this DNxHD into the Mac with the correct gamma?
