    Recording video from cable
    I have one coax cable piping in Comcast Cable (no cable box), and one iMac computer with USB and FireWire connection.

    How can I pipe in the video signal to record it? I just need to record standard def signals.

    You will need a video capture device.

    Here are a few.



    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    +1 for ElGato. Mac-like in its "just works-iness."
