I've played my Dreamcast off a cheap TV card that I bought online for $15. The picture isn't that great, but it's fully playable with no noticeable lag. I can't remember what it's called...I think TV Terminator. It's made in Taiwan. The instructions are in Taiwanese, so you just have to know what you're doing. Luckily, the GUI is pretty self explanatory. The RF works best, but it does have a regular video in...and you'll have to mess around to get the sound to work right. It does come with a wire that branches off that can plug into your sound card. It took me a while, but I eventually got sound and everything working properly on my own, and was broadcasting my live Dreamcast stream on Justin.tv
Nice, last night i figured out how to use the easycap instead of my webcam, so my friends would see me playing N64 which i thought was kinda cool.
My easycap arrived yesterday from deal extreme which im pretty happy about. Under 2 weeks for it to come to my place
I made a quick test video of me playing Pilot Wings on the N64, which i have never really played much of when i used to play N64 heaps, so i decided to play that. Here is the video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltVUOMDJQeg
For some reason, the recording lags at the beginning. It lags when i was playing it to.
When im not recording its fine and theres no lag, but the audio is 1 or 2 seconds off, which is pretty unfortunate.
Overall i'd recommend this to anyone who wants to use their N64 on their pc or another console.
I'll probably try this with my PS2 sometime soon and hope to get the same results, if not better!
Try getting a $3 or so RCA to phono jack adapter, and plug the sound from the console into your computer's microphone port. The lag will be eliminated.
Thanks for the suggestion! Ill ask my dad to see if he has one lying around, otherwise ill just head over to Jaycar and get one since im probably going to the shops since Assassins Creed 2 is out ><
