Hi Seph -- PPro is really bad at downconverting HD to standard def. You may want to edit it in HD and then convert the finished timeline to DVD using the techniques outlined here:
You can also convert your m2ts files to SD first, but that's (even more) complicated.
What is HDR? A hard disk recorder? What codec?
Is your format correct? 1920x1080x32 seems off.
Use project settings that match your footage and export in the same format. You need custom settings if the info you gave is correct. What camera records with alpha channel?
AVCHD, think the 32 should read 50i.
> What is HDR? A hard disk recorder? What codec?
Sounds like AHCHD to me
> What camera records with alpha channel?
Probably not an alpha channel. The codec likely return a "dummy" alpha channel. 32 bit is better optimized for MMX and SSE than 24 bit.
Did you try using an SD Preset Project and importing the files into that project.
If they play nicely in the timeline. 'Scale' them down to either full vertical height (Centre frame extraction) or full horizontal width (Bars top and bottom).
It this works I would suggest you edited in a native project then exported it to an SD Project. Quicker and easier.
(For the record. I do this with 720p original files that I need as SD exports.)

720p, OK... but 1080i is trickier.
