Help: Mono Audio when Print to HDV Tape
Hi all. Need a little help here ... hopefully I've got this in the right forum.
I'm working on a vacation video project in Sony Vegas Pro 7.0. It's the first time I've worked with raw HDV footage, taken with the HV30 I bought before a summer trip in 2008.
At the end of the project, I am going to need to burn it to DVD for the family, but I'd also like to print a "Hi-Def" version to HDV Tape. I did a 1 1/2 minute sample render for both a DVD version and and HDV Tape version and noted to problems.
With the DVD version, I notice a lot of waviness in the video clips, especially when in bright light, or when the camera is moving a lot. Is this a setting issue because the tape is deinterlaced and maybe my DVD burn wasn't ?
More troubling, with the HDV tape version, everything looks great, but the audio is limited to one speaker. I'm playing the tape using component out (ie, audio through the headphon jack on the camera) because my Sony GWIII HDTV does not have HDMI connections.
Any idea how to remedy either problem, but specifically the audio one ? Am I maybe going to need to buy an HDMI to Component+Audio "covnerter" for my TV to have this play right ?
Thanks for any help.

The waviness is likely an interlacing problem. Do a seach of deinterlacing as this has been discussed many times. Not sure what may be causing your audio problem.
