Converting mpg to AVI files? / Capturing direct to AVI?

    I need to convert the mpg files I captured with VCR II software
    to AVI so they can be played to my TV.

    I'm going from the PC Firewire port of my PC to an ADVC-100
    Canopus digital video converter that outputs analog S-Video and
    audio to my TV.

    It only works when I play AVI files using Adobe
    Premiere Pro-7, so I must find a way to convert my mpg files to AVI,
    and also I'd like to find a more user-friendly program that the Premiere,
    to watch later those video files on my TV, as the Premiere requires some
    time consuming settings every time a video file is imported to later be
    played.

    I tried playing with VCR II and Windows Media Player, but the picture only
    shows on my computer monitor, and it is not present on the firewire port.

    Is there a software that allows capturing AVI files directly via firewire
    without
    performing mpg conversion, or a better and simpler way to accomplish this?

    I'll appreciate any help regarding this matter.

    Thanks in advance.
    Paul

    DVIO or Scenalyzer Live will capture DV directly and write in the various
    DV on computer formats.
