Doing the HDV to ProRes capture, IIRC, only gives you Capture Now functionality, strips out the original TC, and gives you 1440x1080 ProRes files. I only mention the last part because in the past I've had odd issues with'thin raster' ProRes files (which were fixed be re-exporting that offending clips at full raster then cutting them back into the timeline). I didn't do extensive testing, so maybe it was just dumb luck, but I got the feeling that ProRes is 'expected' to be full raster and it was the thin raster that was the source of my problems.

I've done the HDV or XDCAM EX in a ProRes sequence workflow on dozens of TV shows w/o problems of note that I can remember. I feel like it's getting the best of both worlds.

Just another opinion to think about.
