In smoke's init.cfg these is a special entry in the archiving section  
for the hdcam deck.  You cannot use the standard hdio entry because of  
the way that smke encodes metadata to the tape... Smoke won't be able  
to verify the archive after it's been formatted on a hdcam because of  
the compression so you have to use the hdcam entry in the init.cfg.
