    Ok here is the question. What I am trying to do is capture video to either my PC or my mac mini. I have several computers to work with. My PC being the fastest i7 Quad 8gb of ram yada yada yada.

    Should I go with the elgato HD to capture convert and import into itunes? Are there alternatives for the PC? I prefer PC because it is faster.

    Elgato has an iphone app that allows me to stream. Not that important because i also use air video. Any thoughts?

    I've been really pleased with El Gato products, and their software is awesome.

    That being said, if your only goal is capturing, check out external boxes and/or cards to do it. That way you offload the work from your computer to a dedicated hardware device.

    I had noticed that the eyetv HD worked only with component input, which is going to become rarer in the future.
