composite (red white and yellow) to usb





linexpert
hi
i just got a nintendo wii and it uses the red white and yellow cables to connect to my tv. i think these are called composite cables. i want to connect the wii to my notebook and need a composite to usb cable.
is there such a thing? where can i buy it?
thanks

Yes, it is called a tuner. It has to reencode the signal, not just convert it, so a lot of circuitry is involved.

This should work for you: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16815153006 but will also require the purchase of an RCA Audio to 3.5mm Audio adapter.

This option is more straightforward, but I have never seen one in action, so I have no idea how well it works: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814255004

The first option will also allow you to watch TV on it, the second one won't. Both will have a minor delay due to encoding, which is why most people don't do this, and just plug into a TV instead...
