What is the least expensive screen capture device that works for the Xbox 360? I don't want one of the $100-200 ones, nor one that requires me to install a capture card in my computer tower. I don't need it to be high-res, nor capture video or audio. I just need it to work somehow through whatever easy connection between my Xbox 360 console and computer, which I certainly assume will be through USB. I'm just looking to make screen captures of my 'Soulcalibur V' character creations.


Edit: I assume it'll involve either a USB connection in one of the Xbox's USB ports, or a connection from one of the LCD monitor's rear ports, along with a USB connection or monitor connection of the receiving computer.
Edit2: I use an LCD monitor connected to my Xbox 360, not like an older TV. (It has an HDMI connection, for example)

Read the first review to get it working correctly.

If you plan on using this to actually play you Xbox 360 on, you're going to have a horrible time with it because it's going to give you horrible lag. If you ever want to record fights or something I would use a component cable for xbox and plug in the yellow rca on the usb adapter. Then I would plug in the components (Green, Blue, and non-audio red) to the back of the TV. After that I would get an rca splitter to hook up the audio to both the TV and usb adapter.

I'm not sure if explained this clearly. If not please reply and I can clarify on where you're confused. Anyways I hope this helps!

Thanks! I think this is something I should have said on the first post, which I will edit after this: I use an LCD monitor connected to my Xbox 360, not like an older TV. It has an HDMI connection, for example. I think that means I'm after something else?

I did find this one. Not inexpensive especially when you add in the hard drive cost.
However you can take it anywhere nd capture with no PC needed.
