Capture HDV and then burn DVD or Blu-Ray with PC?

1) Will products like CyberLink PowerDirector and Adobe Premiere Elements be able to capture the HDV video from my Canon HV20 camera without loss - no loss when compared to the compressed video and audio that is now on the miniDV tape (HDV format = MPEG-2 25 Mbps for the video)? What format would I save it as - e.g. when I used HDVSplit, it saved it as an m2t file which is a container format (and I didn't know what the format of the video and audio were in that m2t container).
2) Will these products then allow me to create a DVD (std def) - using my computer's DVD burner - that will play in any stand-alone DVD player?
3) How about if I had a Blu-Ray burner attached to my PC - would these products allow me to create a Blu-Ray Disk - using my computer's Blu-Ray burner - that will play in any stand-alone Blu-Ray player?
