We've never had ANY problem taking 1080i HDV footage into our Adobe system. Tape deck, camera, it doesn't matter, they all work great. Use the firewire and you'll have deck control too, even when using he camera as a VCR.

Thanks Lou, So you mean there is absolutely no difference in acquiring from camera or the player . They will give same output. And what about acquiring from rgb ,firewire or svideo out, will the quality be same in all these options.

There's no difference. If your computer has Firewire and you have a camera, just use that. If you have a VTR ( a deck) use that because it'll save wear on the tape heads in your camera. Either way, firewire will look just as good as the component when it comes to HDV, plus you get deck contol and audio all through one cable.
