I have all of: DV, SVHS, DVHS and D9. The only format that does
full justice to 480i is D9 (when you have resolved the signal all
the way to analog.) DV and DVHS (HM30000) are also pretty
good, but you need to watch out for motion/decoder artifacts
on the DVHS deck and not all DV decks have great NTSC decoders.
SVHS is a reasonable 3rd choice, but alot of the signal quality
is lost. For consumer use, and having a few extra bucks, my
choice would be DV. D9 is essentially perfect, but very
cumbersome to use for timeshifting.
