I had a Hauppauge HD-PVR and it works well with Component video, but it is unable to record any old school consoles (I.E. N64, Genesis, SNES etc.).
I tried EasyCap because I have heard it is good despite how cheap it was. It wasn't. The video was fuzzy and worse the audio quality was downright abysmal and it lagged.
I don't know who to turn anymore, I am trying to find some kind of a website that shows a capture card comparison but to no avail, so I came here. I heard Roxio was good, but I need more feedback.
Thank you for the help!

Thanks Cauptain, but I gotta ask, is it a USB one? Cause I use a laptop. Also how do I go about and look for one that has the chipset? I guess EasyCap doesn't have it?
If those old games use old style coax connectors then you'll need to get an adapter that can convert coax to composite. I think such devices are called "RF adapaters" if I remember correctly.
It can't, whenever I try to record it skips and I get "no signal" message occasionally on screen, it does not work very well. I called Hauppauge and they said because of the interlacing thing the PVR has, it doesn't perform well with older consoles.
And I use regular cables, both composite and S-Video.
The composite to coax adapters are called RF modulators.
[Edit]I left this out somehow... To go from channel 3 on coax to composite requires a RF tuner/demodulator. A VCR or DVD recorder with an analog tuner would also work in a pinch.
