Camera to Firewire = 1:1 DV.
Camera to ATI USB uncompressed = decompressed copy of the same DV output.

- How does the signal quality look on a JVC blue screen? How transparent is noise?
- Watch for flicker.

The limitation of using pass-thru units is that they are required by law to honor Macrovision. They will not defeat copy protection effects.

WinDV is for digital source only (Digital8), which is a 1:1 direct copy of the digital8 original, without alteration. DV is PC-only playback. You will have to re-encode for other formats such as DVD,...

There's no such thing as "SVHS output". Are you talking about a camera that can play SVHS tapes, or a camera that has s-video output? SVHS and s-video are two different things, and neither has...
