1 Go to User Settings and under the summary tab, make sure that your Device Control is set properly. If you are using a firewire connection out to a DV Camera or Deck, Firewire NTSC is where this preset should be at.

2 Choose FireWire NTSC (720x480) for the Video Playback option within the Summary tab pane under Audio/Video Settings. Click OK.

3 Go to View in the top menu then to External Video and choose the All Frames selection. You should now be able to preview out to that NTSC monitor.
