Hiya, im new to the whole video camera comunity. Now when I view footage on my T.V. using the audio, video, and mono ports on my VCR hooked up to my camera in the audio/video port. Ok so I get good quality out of this. But now when I go to transfer footage to my computer, everything seems of VERY poor quality as compared to on the TV. It is hooked up via the USB cable that came with it, and running pixela image mixer 1.5. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. THANKS!

You should also have a FireWire input/output on that camera as well.  Provided your computer has FireWire inputs, you can purchase a cable and get much better video quality transfered to your computer.

The USB steaming feature on that camera was meant for internet steaming and e-mail, which does not require alot of bandwidth; hence the poor quality video.

Firewire cards are NOT expensive.  I just bought one on newegg.com for 10 dollars plus five bucks shipping.  It came bundled with a camcorder cable and Ulead Video editing software.
