Hello guys, please help me, i'm tired of throwing more money on cables and adapters hoping that they work ... I tried with DVI cable and DVI to VGA adapter, but doesn't work, i see a black screen. I want to know exactly what to buy to be able to see my PC on Mac with Easy Cap.
Please tell me what to do

What exactly are to trying to achieve ? This sounds like the most hair-brained idea I have ever heard.
But let us assune that your PC graphics card supports tv-out over hdmi. Then you need one of these.
Then a set of standard rca cables to the easy cap etc.etc.
Assuming then that you get that POS aka easycap to work on a mac.............
An EasyCap will not do a good job, even assuming you have one of the rare EasyCap products which comes with OSX drivers and compatible capture/viewer software. (OSX-compatible drivers and software are not available for all of the devices sold as an EasyCap.) Today's PC displays are usually high definition progressive 16:9 video devices. An EasyCap will only give you interlaced standard definition 4:3 video, which means text will be unreadable and much detail will be lost.
If you just want to "see" what's on your PC from your Mac, like viewing the PC desktop in an open window, maybe a remote desktop connection is what you're after.
