if you are editing DV, you can output the video via firewire to a miniDV deck or a miniDV camcorder. Then connect the NTSC monitor or TV to whatever you connected your firewire to. Then in FCP you need to go to View > Video playback and choose Firewire. Then View > Audio Playback and choose “Audio follows video.” This will keep audio in sync with your video, but you need to connect speakers to your deck or camera to monitor the audio too.
