[tig] FDL-60 best output

I know these are very basic newbie questions, but I need some help with
this. I recently aquired and FDL-60 for my low-cost telecine house. I do
mainly S8 and low budget 16mm scans to DV, DVCam and BetaSP. Today the
video signals come from the composite outputs of the FDL-60 directly into a
DVCam or BetaSP deck, but I want to use component or RGB signals to
maintain more information in the final video output. I have a box that
converts component to firewire and the BetaSP deck takes component directly.
I seek some advice from people/engineers familiare with the FDL-60 and its
outputs who can give me some advice on how to hook things up the best way.
1. What exactly are the RGB outputs of the FDL-60 and what do I need to use
them? As I said, I'm looking for the best outputs that can be used with the
rest of my setup.
2. The FDL-60 outputs in 4.1.1 - right?
3. What is the best ways to convert to 4.2.0 (DV PAL) - is it just to hook
it up - or should I have some sort of box inbetween? Please keep in mind I
need low cost sollutions here.
4. Are there other outputs than what's on the "Output" panel on the FDL-60?
I have been looking at it but everything seems to be connected to the
different processors/colour correctors. Which sync signal should I use for
the BetaSP deck for instance?
5. Does anyone have a manual for the Ampex CVR-70 or Sony BVW-70 BetaSP deck?
As you understand I'm not an engineer, still I usually find my way around
in the tech world.
I appreciate all the help you can give me.
