Best device for copying Mini-DV to DVD?

I need a better solution to handling Mini-DV tapes and LOTS of them.

For example, a current project involves taking about 92 mini-dv tapes and getting them transferred to DVD as quickly as possible, and I need 3 copies of each.

Currently I capture using Premiere Pro and then encode using DVDit, then use PrimoDVD to setup the duplications on a Primera duplicator. This takes way too long for so many tapes. Smaller projects aren't so bad and those that need editing.

I'm currently looking at getting the JVC SR-DVM700 but don't know if it's my answer and it hasn't been getting good reviews.

Can anyone suggest something else?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

buy a standalone dvd recorder with firewire in. simply dump tape direct to dvd - copy dvd in pc (you can be doing both at the same time).

if there's no editing involved, FORGET digitising!!!!
