No loss of image/sound quality even transfering via a cheap camera/deck...some cameras don't handle the timecode well, though.
There are probably a zillion other posts in here about this...more details in them. (Along with suggestions about whihc cmaera to use/not use. Me, I use a Panasonic DV203 and have no problems.)

Actually, I didn't notice which forum we were in. :) In the Hardware forum, there are a bunch. A search for "cheap deck" or "capturing camera" will bring up some...
