Hey all,

I would like to know what the quality is on the video that has been transfered via DV cable from a Mini DV camera compared to streaming it over USB and having the computer record.

At the moment I have just been streaming over USB. Should i definatly (sp?)
upgrade to IEEE 1394? ($32 off trade me, PCI card + DV cable + Videostudio 7 SE)

Thanks.

No contest, IEEE 1394
Transfer rates roughly 30x that of USB
You will notice a definite improvement in video quality & transfer speed
