No, increasing the capture size doesn't increase the disk space that's 
used your bit rate does that.  If you increase your capture size without 
increasing your bitrate you'll end up with a file the same size (but 
with potentially more compression artifacts).  You might want to try 
704x480, which is more than big enough for NTSC TV and is one of the 
official DVD resolutions.
