CS6
MacPro 4,1


DPX frame numbers can be translated to timecode. This is easy math with the appropriate frame rate.
Calculators online can help do this, (i.e.: http://www.michaelcinquin.com/tools/timecode_keykode

frame 84600 (at 23.976fps or 24) should be 1:00:00:00.
It is in Premiere Pro, it is in SpeedGrade, and in using the calculator above.

In AE, it is 00:59:59:23

You try it, make a comp's starting frame 84600 and see what it is timecode wise at 23.976

I have tried for the life of me to find some setting or preference that is causing this to no avail.

Thank you.

See this section of After Effects Help regarding how to choose whether frame counting starts at 1 or 0:
