    TV Capture?
    Ok, this has probably been asked 1000 times or something. But I am trying to record video game footage onto my mac, is there anyway to do this?

    You question is confusing. Do you want to record a game that you are playing on your Mac? Do you want to record from something like a PS3 to your Mac?

    The first involves screen capturing so search these forums for those two words.

    The second involves some hardware so try searching this forum for the words; digitize vhs.

    Search this form for the words "analog digital" or "record xbox".

    well since, you asked for me to post my results. I have a PC that is about 4 years old. However, 2 years into owning it, I decided to upgrade the GFX card. Didn't really know much about hardware back then. Just picked something that looked good. Turns out I got an ATI all-in-wonder.

    So, I just set everything up with that, hooked my PS3 up to my PC and it works great. There is about a half second lag between what I do with my controller to the monitor. Not a problem for now. Until I start to really get into recording footage that is.

    Weird thing is, I looked on my TV and it doesn't have a video out. no idea why. it has audio output, but no composite or s-video out.

    You responded to my signature which is meant to remind people to post there results to the question asked, not their past experience.

    Since your TV doesn't have the video out, perhaps investing in a splitter box would allow you to eliminate that 1/2 second delay by allowing you to watch the TV while letting the Mac (or PC) do the recording. That delay is a killer for some games.
