I ´m thinking of buying a Canopus ADVC-110 that has not mpeg hardware encoders, it gives via fireware dv(.avi) files.
I´ve also seen Ads Tech Instant DVD + DV that has hardware mpeg compresors.
As I´ve seen on forums Canopus has a very good quality and everyone talks good about it.
The question is: Would it be a problem for me not to have hardware mpeg encoders?. I mean in quality at the time of compresing to burn a DVD?.

Thank you, Rouch.
