    Is there a way to record gameplay using the PS3 cable to the TV and using two sided RCA cables to connect to a capture card to a laptop. Is it possible or is it just better using a HDMI cable.

    I'm not familiar with PS3s but I can tell you that keeping your signal as close to the original digital source is the best thing to do if video quality is what you desire. Running your signal through RCA cables into the capture card is a digital to analog conversion which will degrade the video quality. Using HDMI keeps your signal digital.

    Sorry I haven't responded in a while but I have a new plan. I am thinking of using the component cable from the PS3 to the tv. I am planning on using a VGA to RCA cable from the end of the tv to the capture card then to the computer. Would this work? I'm not sure if the vga cable to rca cable can capture whatever is on my tv.
