Some people say firewire is better from DV tape because you're keeping an all digital signal path. The bad part of that is a) no proc amp controls on input and b) color space is 4:1:1 (4:2:0 in PAL). This comes into consideration if you are doing a lot of compositing. The s-video line (even though its being converted from digital to analog a) gives you proc amp control on input and b) is upconverted to 4:2:2 color space. This is a little misleading because there still isn't "enough" color to do real high end compositing, but you might see a little difference if you pull a chromakey from the s-video signal. Hope that helps.
