    Wii Mac
    So I have a 24 inch iMac and a 20 inch tube TV and I'm gonna get a Wii soon. I want to get rid of the tube TV so bad but once I get the Wii I'm going to need it to play. So is there any way to hook up the Wii to my Mac?

    A few people have used the Elegato TV tuner devices. I use one to both watch tv and to run my PS2.

    I could do that, but I rather save space and just run everything through my Mac. Anyone else have any suggestions?

    If you have a digital video camera that can accept analog input, you could feed it to the digital video camera then into the computer via Firewire.

    As I already said, you can use one of the EyeTV tuner cards. They have a game mode that specifically doesn't record the signal and has almost no lag.

    yea, a tvtuner card is the best way to go about this, i believe 2 brand names have already been mentioned. it allows the wii (or any other device with the same connections) use the imac as a display (such as a tv).

    I have that HD Stick and it works GREAT for TV recordings but it won't allow me to connect the Wii. Can you guys be ever so kind and provide a link to the product you're mentioning?

    So that one will work right? I just want to make sure before I drop $150 on it.
