Did you capture as HDV? When you render is it ok? Some times it is best to capture as DV not HDV the quality will be as good (letter boxed) but it means fce is not having to decode the mpg4 compression of HDV in realtime. Can lead to a jolting due to extram RAM usage.

New user. Audio IN and Out fine in iMovie via Firewire and headphone monitoring. No audio in newly installed FCExpress HD.

It seems the know-it-alls at Apple have decided that we should monitor the audio, not via our Mac output but from our attached camera's audio out. Even iMovie does it better. That's the way they show it in the 'Set Up' section and,sure enough, thats the only way you can monitor audio. How stupid! Davideo

Print to Video from Final Cut to GV-HD700 HDV has been impossible. What are the proper settings for both programs?

Depends how you are out putting the signal and the aspect of the original source footage. If firewire insure input select is hdv / dv, iee. And that remote is selected (if that deck has a remote option). Ensure the aspect ratio is correct as a sequence setting mark the area with an in and out and select in/out in the print to video window. Away you go, unless the tape is for broadcast (which I doubt as HDV is not generally a deliverable format).

Final Cut Express Audio

Just on a lap top not a editing suit with additional hardware? Can you hear MP3 files played in ITunes? (if not speakers or sound card hardware issue) Can you hear new files captured (if so recapturing quickest)?
N.B. Do you know there is a master sound device in system preferences?
