Camcorder video transfer formats

by MattM / December 15, 2004 12:13 PM PST

I have a new JVC miniDV digital camcorder with what looks like 3 methods of video transfer to a computer. Given i have one more purchase to go (unit,bag,tape,battery,DVDburner,cable?), does anyone know which cable would work best? There's SVideo, IEEE 1374, and standard W/R/Y RCA plug ports. Is it just about speed or is one superior in video/audio quality? Thanks

digital. Therefore, the video and audio will not be degraded in the transfer. The others are analog interfaces.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
