    I have a Samsung SC-D353 camcorder and would like to make DVD copies of
    the tapes on a standalone DVD recorder. I don't need to do any editing
    and I don't need to load to a PC.

    The choice in standalone DVD recorders seems to be between those that
    connect via S-video and the slightly more expensive models that connect
    via IEEE1394. The camcorder has both types of connectivity available.

    The question is - would IEEE1394 provide significantly better video
    and/or sound quality than S-video and separate audio cables?

    Thanks! - John Cowart

    Without going into the technical details, going firewire (IEEE 1394)
    will definitely give you better picture quality than the S-video route.

    Haden't thought about it before, but I suppose the Firewire will negate
    the need for separate audio connections as well.

    The Panasonnic units get good reviews. Mine was about $250 and has a
    firewire connect.
