Perhaps you could try to use a VCR in one of two ways. First, you can connect the Xbox 360 to the VCR and then record the match on a VHS tape. However, that will not give you a good quality picture. I tried to use a VHS to get footage to make a Halo video for a class and the picture and audio quality was poor. The second option I can suggest, still using the VCR (if it has the front jacks as well as ones in the back), is to connect the Xbox 360 to the front of the VCR and then you should be able to hook up a DV camcorder to the VCR's output connection where you can then use the DV camcorder to record it.

Sorry if that's confusing in any way.

I believe you can do the same thing Wizdabest mentioned with a DVD recorder which would offer you Higher resolutions and the ability to transfer it to your PC fairly easily. Also a Video capture card could be used (assuming you dont mind playing on your monitor, but htere's probly a way around it)

Yea that would probably work too, the reason I went with the VCR is because that's what I've done in the past and I have a firewire card for the next step from there.

The only question I have about that is how will I be able to still see the game on the T.V if my xbox is connected to a VCR and not my T.V........do i need a splitter of some sort??

All right guys, i figured out how to connect everything but if i were to play a clan match while recording it, does that mean that i would have to play on my camcorders little 3.5 inch LCD screen??

Hmmm, does the VCR have a cable in and a cable out connection (cable tv?). I think you could have the cable running into the VCR, which then is connected to the TV so that anything going through the VCR is displayed on the TV. Then, you shouldn't have to play using the camera.

Yes it does have both type of connections but does that mean I will have to put it on a VHS tape and then onto my camcorder from there??
