Default First capturing of VHS tapes

After advice here, I am just about set up ... first initial captures worked a treat.
SVHS deck <svideo/L&R audio> ADVC300
ADVC 300 < IEE1394 > PC

On PC current set up is Sony Vegas Studio 9
Using Video Capture to DV files.
I'll copy in a bundle of tapes first then have a go at improving & editing later.
Really pleased that they have come in jitter free and colours seem good.

Just wanted to check that using the Sony Vegas for capture is OK ? .... I know a lot of people talk about WinDV and other programs, as Sony Vegas seems to work so easily is this OK .... that I'm not losing any quality by using it ?

Apart from setting region to Europe & file to DV everything else is standard the saved .avi files are:
720 x 576
Data rate 28800kbps
Total bitrate 30336kbps
25 frames per sec

Saved files are about 0.22 GB per minute of video

I have left all settings on ADVC300 as default, have picture controller s/w installed, but not tweaked with anything.

Does all this seem OK ... wanted to check before I digitize the rest.
