If I wanted to get video from a source using the three-colored cables (yellow, white, red), which would be the best capture device for me?

My budget is about $100.

I have heard good and bad things about Pinnacle, can I get the .mp4 files into iMovie and correct any misaligned audio?

At first I thought you were talking about component video connectors, but those are typically red, blue and green. Your color description suggests composite video with stereo audio.

Perhaps the Elgato Video Capture device would suite you. I have an EyeTV from Elgato and like it and their software.

Pinnacle may be fine for Windows users, but they seem to have had issues with Macs. Don't know if is has gotten any better.

Just to note, the Blackmagic Design Video Recorder can handle the component video.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

Will the Blackmagic take a satellite receiver feed?

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.

I don't know.

If you are thinking about capturing HD, that doesn't seem possible as the specs only mention SD. Also keep in mind that these devices respect copy protection schemes.
