Ok, let me make sure i've got this right:
1080i/60.00 runs at true 30.00 fps, so there's no need for df timecode. 
1080i/59.94 runs at true 29.97 fps (or is that fake 30 fps), making it the same [frame rate] as SD NTSC, so you use ndf or df as required. ? Jack

I haven't heard of ANYONE currently using 1080i/60 because no NTSC decoder can accommodate it, largely because NO NTSC encoder will work at 60Hz. Just like always.

P.S. I don't think we'll be seeing 60hz frame rates in the near future, same for true 24fps tapes.
