Yes and no.
FCP relinks based on file name. If that matches, it uses timecode to find the actual point. If that fails, it uses relative start from the beginning.

So yes, it can be done if you media manage to clips to digitize, and have FCP ingest it as it wants it to be.

Now with HDV this is a nightmare, since the preroll will kill you.
(unless you have a very decent deck.)
Recapture entire tapes and relink will fail, you need to point at several clips (but if the originals were all long ingests the amount might not be that bad)

An alternative is my FCP relink application (there is a newer one here in beta you might need if the original fails.)

In any case, download the demo from my site just for the manual.
There is the entire story on how FCP does its relinking.)
