Seems to me the only way to go is High Definiton.
The SP,and LP is not very good quality and not real fun to look at.
The problem with High Definition is you need at least two 4.7 gig DVD 'S to record one HI-8 Tape.
OR if you have a Double layer player like I have (Plextor PX-0840U) you could use one DVD.
I have not tried this as yet. I am still learning.
I find Creator 2009 S.E. is alot of work,alot of studying,learning. I have already given up on CINEPLAYER,a junky player and am using the VLC PLAYER.
I cant give up on Creator as yet for there is nothing on the market to replace.Or to replace would mean I would have to buy several software products. NO THANKS.
Well that is all for now.
