I have an old Playstation. An old Super Nintendo. An old Nintendo 64. An old Sega Saturn. And an Xbox 360.

I'm looking around for a video capture card for my computer so I can capture some of my old games, especially Princess Maker 3, Tokimeki Memorial 1 and 2 (for Playstation), Sentimental Graffiti (for Sega Saturn), and Idolm@ster and Idolm@ster Live for You (for Xbox 360). I'm not so interested in the Nintendos although it would be neat to grab them as well.

Problem is when I'm looking at video capture cards on the market they're all for HDMI primarily for modern game machines like the Xbox and PS 3.

There's some cables out there for converting HDMI to RCA to run modern game machines on old televisions but my google-fu must be pretty weak, I can't find cables that run RCA to HDMI. Everyone's just trying to sell them in the opposite direction. I think few people want to run old machines into new TVs or something.

Anyhow, either I need to find a great video capture card that can accept both modern and ancient cables without being a million bucks or I need to find me some cables.

I thought I'd ask here. Maybe someone has some great advice on their own video capture cards and maybe some things I haven't thought of about video capture.

Anyway, wish me luck.

You could use what I use. Blackmagic Intensity Pro. It has component cable, hdmi, and rca cable support. If you want one that supports Coax cables though.... well... good luck. I doubt they make any that support them anymore. With some converter cables it might be possible.

I see I see. Well they're selling one for about $180 online which isn't bad. It certainly gives me something to fall back on if I can't find something else.

Many thanks sir.
