I've heard (during a rare visit to a pub) that Sony HDCAM recorders =
either don't record the VANC or blank it on playback between lines 10 =
and 20 and that some post houses set the VANC to be on line 21 (in =
picture area!) to get around this.

Does anyone know if:

a) that is true
b) whether there is a dip switch or other setting to allow the VANC to =
be recorded and replayed.
c) there are any mods available.
