HDV is not a great format to work with particularly if you're doing any effects. Try converting a shot to prores and see if your problem eases.
It's also possible you have a drive problem. Can you test this with another drive? Run diskutility: repair disk and if you've got it, run diskwarrior.

To Michael's checklist I'd add this: are you using the download version of Motion? If you are, it's possible there may be some sort of conflict with FCS. If you're still getting beachballs, consider reinstalling Motion…using Apple's "best installation practices".
I too don't like to work in HDV, but on the occasions I have, I've not encountered anywhere near the difficulties you describe.
