It sounds like you are using analog cables to copy from the camcorder to the dvd recorder. If this is the case then yes, there would be a big advantage to capturing on your pc. If you use analog cables to record, essentially what you are doing is converting the digital signal to analog and back again, which is really eating up your quality. If I’m not correct and you are using digital cables (not sure how those things are set up since I dont have a standalone DVD recorder), then the only advantage to capturing on the pc would be DVD authoring; creating menus and such, which is alot of fun!
