I am firewiring mini DVs from a Sony VX2000 to a well configured PC (SATA drives, Dual core processor, 2GB memory).

If I view the footage on a TV through the analogue video output I have good quality pictires with with straight lines, shot in good light.

However, once the digital output is transferred via firewire to the PC the quality drops. The prevously straight edges are serrated and fuzzy.

Avid Media Composer does not have an import setting specifically for the VX2000 but the generic and the fairly close 150PD device imports show the problem equally.

Does anyone know what the problem may be?

Thank You
