    Xbox 360 to Macbook Capture Card
    Hey guys,
    I am looking for a capture card that I could use to record from my xbox 360 to my Macbook so that I could edit and possibly upload to youtube.
    My price range is relatively low($200 max).
    My hardware on my macbook is the late 2008 aluminum 2.4 GHz and 250 GB hard drive. Other info here MacBook (13-inch, Aluminum, Late 2008) - Technical Specifications
    If you need anymore info feel free to ask.
    Thanks

    Your best bet is the Hauppauge HD PVR. Its fully compatible with the Xbox 360. Its an HD recording device. I own one myself and have had very good results. It's $200 and definetly worth it. You can even upload to youtube in HD. Since you are running on a mac though you will need another piece of software called EyeTV which is about $60. The HD PVR is PC based but this software allows you to use it very smoothly. I'll put links for the recording device, software, and my youtube channel so that you can see the quality of it.

    Another option if you get the HDPVR is to get this software for capturing: steventoth.net HDPVR Capture - the current version was just released in April of this year. It works fairly well.

    Of course, you're going to want to play the game watching on a TV rather then the computer tho as there is lag time between capture and display on the computer (with Elgato software or with HDPVR Capture) - Elgato also does have an HD capture device like the HDPVR - I've never used it tho (I just happen to see it at an Apple store a few weeks ago).

    I have tried HD PVR Capture. It is a decent program but EyeTV works much smoother. HD PVR Capture did not recognize my device at first and I ran into a few problems configuring it. EyeTV easily recognized my device and automatically made the correct settings. The workflow with EyeTV is much easier as well. It may be more pricey, but it is more quality.

    Hmm, that's odd - it recognized mine right off the bat

    Do you have an Apple Store somewhere nearby? If you do - you can probably check out the Elgato HD capture device (at least they had it at the store in my area)

    Elgato HD and the Elgato Pro cards are very good. My friend has one, and it works seamlessly with no issues at all, good resolution too.

    How to Connect a Computer to a Verizon Cable Box | eHow.com
    Could this be a good way to record also? I have a Verizon Fios cable box and if this does work, what DVC should I use, I want to stay at low price for this one( below $120)
    Are there any other ways to record also such as Elgato Hybrid USB or Dazzle? Or using an application on my mac? I am sort of new to this, but I am just looking for the easiest/cheapest/best quality way to record audio and video from my xbox 360 to my mac.
    Thanks
