    Is it possible to connect a ps2 to a computer so you can capture video and save it on the computer? I know there are tv tuners out there but I don't know if its possible to connect AV cables (2 connectors for sound and 1 for the video).

    What you're looking for is a video capture card it sounds like. I don't see where RF enters into the picture, so the previous two suggestions don't seem to be what you need. This KWORLD VS-L883D PCI Interface X-Pert DVD Maker PCI Card is an example of what you are looking for.

    I believe mine would work. But the one you found is cheaper and basically only what he wants to do. The one I picked was a TV tuner and capture card. So it will do more then what he just wanted to do. I was just asking if this is something he was looking for. Meaning the inputs.... But good choice. I actually like that. It says 30 fps would it be the same as the VCR movie if I recoreded it to DVD. Or would it be choppy. Are there other cards out the will give more FPS?

    fatbobthefirst, you're right, it does have a video capture capability. However, it's massive overkill for the simple task at hand. :)

    I couldn't but that pci card. Newegg doesn't deliver to Canada, unfortunately.

    There must be Canadian sources of similar products.
