Right Ken. I totally agree on the use of D2 for film archival. As you 
are aware, my point was that when the source footage is VHS, and DV to 
begin with... well archiving VHS to D2 is rather like storing old 
newspapers in a gold box. It works, but the value of the newspaper 
doesn't improve any - just the cost of the storage.


I think a lot of good advise came from this list. Quite a versatile 
collection of knowledge here.
