You need to R click on the timecode at the bottom L of the source monitor and select "non-drop frame" rather than the default "drop-frame".
The problem is that you have to do this every time you open an audio clip in the source monitor.
I assume this is one of the many features where Adobe have not got around to differentiating between US and UK practice.
Couple of problems arose trying that... one is that you can't change DF/NDF once a clip has been used - but I guess that makes sense.
Second is that NDF still means NTSC frame rate of 30fps (i.e. for HH:MM:SS:FF, FF goes up to 29 frames not 24).
Thirdly they seem to be missing a frame - there is no FF=00 !
I suppose they need to add a '25fps' option there - seems like it would be better as a global preference (i.e. audio material in 25fps projects should have 25fps timecode).
>there is no FF=00
There is no fame 01 either, these are the dropped frame numbers in "drop-frame" timecode. You will see this on all minute boundaries except on every tenth minute.

I understand DF, but this was with NDF.
Trying to repeat it I just had a clip that jumps between :28 and :30... mind you switching it back to DF it has :00, then skips to :02.
So I guess it is still getting some timecode info from the original QT file maybe?
All in all not ready for PAL frame rates at the very least. Sorry to have troubled you all.
As far as I can tell, the display format does not matter for the project, as audio time is based on samples anyway. You can display the audio time as samples by selecting this from the drop-down menu at the top R of the Source Monitor.
