The rotor should point to a few degrees before #1 when the #1 piston is at TDC of the compression struck i.e. both valves are shut.
That's correct to the best of my meager knowledge. I didn't see the particular shot on TV you're talking about, so I can't say if they goofed up or not. Maybe it looked like it was pointing to another cylinder because they had a lot of advance on it. That's the way I'll be doing it when I take the HEI from my 350 and into my 396.
