Depends on the length of the show. If it's DV, DVCPRO 50 or DVCPRO HD. DVCPRO HD at 1080 24p converted to 1080 24p in a 10 bit codec does take alot of time. You also have to make sure that you're system is up to handling the amount of bandwidth Uncompressed takes. It's only worth capturing footage that has been brought in as a codec other then what the footage originates on. If you have D-beta material captured as DV, capture it at 10-bit. If you have DV, captured straight in as DV, recompressing that DV footage without effects to 10-bit is going to be close to SDI out and beat Component out hands down.

As for actual times, we've recompressed a 15 minute show from DV to 10 bit in under two hours. Also, you avoid any timecode issues with recapture. Easiest offline to online process.
