Panasonic TH-42PX60U and camcorder jaggies

Just got a Pana MiniDV camcorder PV GS85 and when playing back on the plasma tv a lot of edges are jagged whether there is action or not. Burned a dvd with two video clips - one captured via firewire and one via the analog out (composite video and audio - RCA connectors. Doesn't seem to be any noticeable difference between the two capture modes. Both have the same jaggies. When play back on a crt, dvd picture is fine. What is up? Could it be that the camcorder is interlaced and the tv is 720p? Anyone have any ideas to make it more viewable?
