Hi guys! I want to capture video from my TV but my main interest is recording video game footage from my xbox360. My main rig has Windows Vista (x_x) But its for gaming and its a high end system. I want to record game footage from my xbox360 off my TV. I was wondering what is the easiest/cheapest way of doing this? I am not too concerned about video quality but I want it to look good enough to watch.

The easiest way is to put a video capture card between your xbox and your TV. Any card based on the bt878 or saa7134 chips with video in and out will work fine

Could you point out where i should look or specific models of TV capture cards? I do not know the names (brands) of TV capture cards. Also is this external hardware or internal?

Never mind, I finally found some after I figured out they were called "tv tuner cards" on newegg.com.
