Right Click on your clip> Properties...what does it say?
In iMovie, what were your Capture settings, DV? That is a likely cause.
Good luck, and please take Craig's request to heart.
Actually HDV is 1440 x 1080 not 1920 x 1080.
Here is one possibility: The XHA1 s the ability to downscale HDV footage to SD while it transfers. This would explain our smptoms. Check the config of your camera and make sure the downscaling is not turned on.
1440 rectangular pixels equal 1920 square pixels, so 1920 x 1080 is still HDV format
OK some nitpicking
The A1 films in 1920x1080 and puts in 1440x1080 on tape therefor making it HDV.
I agree with Curt. The camera must have been on downscaling to DV.
Check the Signal Setup in the menu of the camera if the HD DOWN-CONV is set to OFF.
