    Specific HDV Question for Canon HV30

      I have just purchased a new Canon HV30 and i am wanting to capture and archive in the best quality. The HV30 records video in 1080i and 30fps. What is the best way to utilize PP CS3 to capture and archive this HD (high quality) video? Should I capture using the HDV 1080i30 (60i) preset, which is 1440 x 1080, or the XDCAM EX 1080i 60i (HQ) preset, which is 1920 x 1080?
      When I captured the video to PP CS3 before, it did not seem to look as good as when the camcorder is connected directly to the TV. My thoughts on this is that the TV (native 720p)is upscaling to 1080i, and the captured video from the PC is remaining 720p. Does this sound correct? Any and all advise will be appreciated.
