Is this possible? With Vegas Platinum there's a toggle above the preview monitor for running out firewire to your cam, and assumedly from your cam to your TV so you can see your edits on a TV screen. Unfortunately, Vegas seems to only output regular 4x3 SD-DV through firewire. Thus, my 16x9 HDV footage is squished together in a small 4x3 DV frame.
Also, while I can see the above mentioned DV output on my cam, I'm running an HDMI cord from my cam to my HDTV, and there's no signal getting through to the TV. That is, I monitor my shots from the cam to the TV through HDMI just fine when recording on the cam, but when running from my computer NLE to my cam, and then from the cam to the TV doesn't seem to work via HDMI. Is this typical?
So, is there a way to make Vegas output HDV instead of DV from the NLE to my cam during editing? And is there a way to then take that footage to my TV? Is it the HDMI cord that's holding me up? Or is it just something with Vegas outputting that SD-DV signal that's responsible?
