If so, consider

1) Capturing via firewire (using Dazzle Hollywood DV Bridge or other 
comparable device--Sony makes one, too that is supposed to be quite 
good--to convert analog to digital) into iMovie
2) Output iMovie to iDVD
3) Author and burn to DVD using iDVD

4) In addition to the DVD-video disk in #3, burn an archive of captured 
video to DVD using Toast, for further editing

Above requires a Mac with built-in DVD-R drive. The 15 inch flat panel 
iMac will do very well.  If this does not answer the original question, 
please forgive me.
