Hi Tom, Yes I considered purchasing the 170 but it would have cost about $8000- and as you know ingesting from a player is quicker and easier than trying to fight your way through menu's on a camera. Plus I wanted it to be sSOoo simple that a 16 year old tv school graduate being paid $300 for a 60 hour week could operate it.... I'm sure you know what I mean :-)

I discovered a small operational fault with the AG-HPG10 (P2 Gear) when copying clips from one card to another the copy process would get to about 80% and then would appear to crash, just turn off, no lights, no warning.
After trying lots of different cards etc. I returned it to the Panasonic NZ service centre and the very "on to it" tech discovered that it simply was turning off after 5 minutes due to having the "Power save" function on. - disable this function and problem solved, The factory has been informed. hopefully this fix may be included in a future firmware update.

Now Resting my heavy SPX800, so I very recently bought a lightweight HPX172 , had only a few hours on the clock, cost about $4500, I see some HVX200 on ebay here in OZ for about $4, as a card reader / spare / sec camera is good idea.
Easy to just connect via USB and push in button and P2 icon is up on the desk top.
a trained monkey could do it, not rocket science.
anyway good to hear your away and running. P2 is good workflow when your aquainted with all the methods.
