Hi, I am new to the forums, so please don't scream at me. :)



I was thinking about making a video on my soon-to-be-built Legacy booting up. I was thinking on how to record it. So I think of the most stupidest option; using a camcorder. Camcorders are good for videos, like home films and such, but camcorders don't like CRT monitors, as they will flicker, and people would be distracted by the scan lines. So then I thought about some type of capture card. I try to look up tutorials, but all I get are tutorials for the Xbox 360, which is not what I want in this case. Heres how I would want it set up:



My main computer/laptop has some USB Capture Card  device plugged in. Then, this capture card somehow connects to Legacy's monitor, so it captures it, but I can still see on that monitor. Sorry for not using proper words and such. What do I have to do, and if you can, give me a diagram of what it should look like. And if needed, tell me about other hardware I need "I was thinking a splitter...." Thanks.

So, what are you doing exactly? Are you just trying to record a monitor that hooked up to a computer?
