Record a xbox 360 using a digital camera. Connecting DC to TV?????

I've heard you connect the tv to your camera so you can see the tv on the camera's screen then you press record.

How would I connect them both? I have the video wire that came with the camera.

Saw someone saying this elsewhere, but don't know if it's true:

To record game movies, you should connect the Xbox with the yellow Standard video connector (not the HDTV plugs) to a Video recorder or a PC with a video capture board.

Btw, any progress with the seller who didn't send the item?

Someone?

yellow composite out to composite in on dvd recorder or camera. white and red for sound.

It's the other way round, the video connection on the camera is an output not an input at least on any the stills cameras I've seen. To use a digital stills camera to record an xbox you'd need to set up the camera to actually record the TV.

That's what I want. I want it to record the tv screen and I don't mean holding it up against the tele and recording.

Mines don't have words on them? So it's the wires that matter?

What model of camera is it? The wires make no difference as they're just carrying the signal regardless of the direction, if the camera did support video inputs it would most likely label some of the video terminals as for video in. As I've mentioned I've not come across a digital stills camera which can do this, while they may exist I think it's unlikely your one has the capability.

It's a samsung 7.2 megapixel I don't have it with me right now so I can't give the model number.
What do you mean by do this? Your saying it's not possible for it to record off the t.v?

Not directly, I've never seen a digital stills camera with video in capability although it's often possible on digital video cameras. Normally you just have to set up the camera to record the TV screen.

Oh so I would need a camcorder?

A camcorder is one possibility (if it supports it), otherwise you would need a DVD recorder, a capture board for your PC or some form of PVR recording device.

Oh great so it would be possible if I had the slot.
Also could you point me in the best capture card deal I may consider it?

Have a look in the instructions and at the socket on it, it will probably … Have a look in the instructions and at the socket on it, it will probably say A/V Out, it will only work if it says A/V In. I'd say it 99.99% can't do it.



Says a/v out so there's no way?
Where's the best place I can get a capture card for? Would a tv card work like the ones that let you watch tv on the pc?

what gfx card have you already got as it may have capture device built in look for VIVO on part number on box - lots do. Or do you not have a [home]dvd recorder.

Hey there! I was just wondering if this works for the old Xbox as well? Since I don't know anything about the 360 and rather stick to my oldschool darling, I was just eager to ask.

Thanks in advance!
