I have the device shown here, called +XLR8 XtraView+.
It comes with software for doing video capture, but I mostly use that software to display the video output from my TiVo (which is just an RCA-type cable) on my screen in a window. At the time, it was the least expensive option I could find, and it works well. It basically makes that window on my screen into a TV. Note: This particular product is only for standard def, not HD.
There are some other low cost options I see now from Elgato and Miglia. If I was getting one now, I'd probably looking into the specs on those products, for example
You can see other options from those companies on their respective web sites.Various including Intel iMac, Power Mac G5, Pismo w/G4, Power Mac 8100 w/G3, Mac OS X (10.5.6), also Mac OS X 10.4.11, Mac OS X 10.3.9, and Mac OS 9.x
