    Hey I'm thinking about buying EasyCap, but I'm not sure what other accessories I need with it to record on my PC while also playing on my tv. I have a HDTV, with the following ports:

    Audio output - L, R, SPDIF
    PC Audio Input
    VGA
    Componant Input - Y2, Pb2, Pr2, R2, L2
    Y1, Pb1, Pr1, R1, L1
    AV Input - AV2, R2, L2
    AV1, R1, L1, S-Video

    HDMI1, HDMI2, HDMI3

    Basically I'm just wondering what would be the best way to set it up to record without necessary cables and accessories to do so. I'm a complete noob when it comes to video stuff so any help with the things I need would greatly be appreciated.:smile:

    Well... I use a component cable. When recording I have the component cable in, with the component cables plugged into the TV, the switch set to SD. The other s-video (the yellow cable) goes to the EasyCap. I have two splitters for the audio cables which look like this:

    As well as a set of cables like this.

    The splitter gets plugged into the tv socket and in one side goes the sound from the Xbox, the other the cable mentioned above, which goes to the EasyCap. Simple electronics. :tongue:

    I brought them off Amazon.co.uk, but any generic one will work.

    Ok I have everything that you said but I can't figure out a damn what this paragraph says...

    "Well... I use a component cable. When recording I have the component cable in, with the component cables plugged into the TV, the switch set to SD. The other s-video (the yellow cable) goes to the EasyCap. I have two splitters for the audio cables which look like this"]

    If someone could translate it I'd appreciate it

    Oops, my bad. I just realised I got s-video mixed up with composite. :S All that time, I mean't composite. But s-video will work just as well.

    Edit: I now have pics.... And they're not extension cables BTW... CBA to redo the pics.
    What I mean with component cable set to SD:

    Setup on back of TV with splitters and w/e:

    And setup at EasyCap end:
