    Im just wondering, im new to capturing, I want to capture my babies movies to PC so I can burn on DVD from my Hi8 Cam directly but I can only capture at 320,240 and vcd quality 1400KB/sec? is this correct is or it just Pinnacle Studio 9 thats causing the issue?

    Im not sure of the bandwidth specifications of Svideo so it may be correct?

    If you want to capture for DVD in the Best Quality you Must capture Mpeg2 at 720+480 for NTSC and 720+576 for Pal and the Video Bitrate should be beween about 5000kbs and 8000kbs...
    Pluss if you are Captureing directly to Mpeg2 for DVD then you should Dump Pinnacle Studio 9 and use something else as Studio 9"s Mpeg capture isn"t that good...
    I suggest useing something like "Intervideo WinDVR 3.0" and if you want to Put this Mpeg2 file on to DVD with Studio 9 then make sure that it does not Re-encode the Video because this will Just degrade the Quality and if it does try to re-encode the Video (Crappy Programs have a Habbit of Doing This) then use something else to Author the DVD Like "DVDLab"...

    320+240 is not a Valid Resolution for any Video standard accept for Streaming Video which is allways pretty Low Quality....

    Cheers

    Well the problem is with either your Capture device or with studio 9..
    I suspect it is your Capture device that can not capture above 320+240....

    What type of Capture device are you useing????
