if i am not mistaking the XM2 has a RCA connector for the mic, and i’m guessing by how you decribe the mic that it is a XLR. Correct me if i’m worng about that and i’ll refine my answer.
Does the memory card recorder have a monitor out? most do and are most of the time 1/4″.
If this is the case you can get a 1/4″ to RCA adapter, and plug the monitor out to the camera. then you can use the memory card recorder as a back up audio source.
if not, then shoot with both the on cam mic and the MCR. just before you start have some body stand in front of the camera while both the camera and MCR are recording, have them count down from 3 and then clap their hands. you will then be able to sync the audio. just make sure the sample rate are the same on both units, Rookie mistake.
hope this helps
