I'm shooting a period piece set in the 80's. Does anyone have any tips to eliminate the rolling lines? Different speeds?

Shutter speed.
You have to match your shutter speed to the TVs refresh rate... 1/60th I think works? But it's been awhile.

With the HVX-200 you will have to go into the menu setting and your looking for SYNCRO SCAN. you can use this in the P2 or Tape mode. This mode display mode (camera) adjust the syncro scan shutter speed used for shootong images on a TV screen, etc.
Press and hold the OPERATION BUTTON to speed up the speed value. If your using the VIDEO CAM as the selected OPERATION TYPE your option setting will give you 60P or 60i, etc. If your using the FILM CAM as the selected OPERATION TYPE the shutter speed is selected as the OPERATION Type option (the angle can be changed in increments of 0.5 degrees)

Hope this helps!
