Hello. Is there any way I could record Xbox gameplay straight to my computer? Or, if that is not possible, what do I need to copy vcr to dvd at home?
Regardless of the source of video signal, you just need some kind of video capture device with external inputs (SVGA on both sides is preferable to composite video), e.g. the ATI All-In-Wonder series (I use a PCIe version), to capture (i.e. "record") to a video file the output of the Xbox game play video, save it, and then use some DVD burning software, e.g. NERO, Roxio, or whatever to burn the file to DVD or CD-V disc, depending on length.
Optionally you can record videos to VCR and then playback the tape with the VCR A/V outputs into the PC capture device inputs, save the file to PC and burn it to DVD. But that degrades the overall quality going from digital to analog and back to digital (D/A/D conversions).
Of course this all assumes you have a fast enough (P4 class) PC to accomplish real-time video capture, without a lot of drop-out or lockups.
