Have you sorted the problem? Vegas don't set the bitrate so high normally. I presume you rendering it in Mpeg2 via the mainconcept codec? check the settings are set to DVD pal on the output.
i just rendered some stuff from my old Camcorder and made it ten minutes long, i end up with a file of 500MB and it comes out at around 6Mb/s
