DV is MPEG2.
Uncompressed video would be about 50Gb / hour.
That's just the video - Uncompressed audio is about 650Mb / hour.
If you want mpeg4, there are 2 routes.
1. Fast processor (Athlon XP 2000+) and 'dumb' capture card (bttv, etc)
2. Just about any USB2 capable PC and a PX-TV402U - Which can capture
directly to MPEG4.
Both of those options are supported by Mythtv - You'll have to go CVS or
wait a week or two for the next release, however.
I don't think this will fix your issue, however. It sounds like your
editing software doesn't understand VBR.
