I am interested in shooting a quick timelapse sequence on video. Can the DVX-100b do interval recording? I might be able to borrow a GL2 from a friend, which I think can do interval recording, but I would rather shoot this with the DVX.

No.

The interval record function was left out of the 100B model.

Don't use the camera functions at all for this.

Roll on the shot with tape in real time, use all manual settings, very important.

Then use http://www.framethief.com to create the time lapse. Very cheap software and will do the job perfectly for you. Just have Frame Thief sample your continuous roll at one frame every 3-4 seconds, and build it into a final QT movie.

Easy and looks perfect!
