  2. Set the capture format to YUY2 or UYVY. Then use UtVideo YUV 4:2:2 BT.709. Later when your editing or recompressing be sure to tell the software your video is interlaced.

    As long as you don't do anything that causes the video to be converted to RGB in VirtualDub it doesn't matter. So, capturing HD as YUY2, save as YUY2+UT, gives you rec.709 colors.
