    I'm trying to get something which will allow me to connect my NES (Yes the 1980s console) to my Mac...
    I've got the 24" iMac and to me it seems pointless buying a TV for my room...
    Is there anything I can use to hook it all up?
    I've seen a few analogue to digital converters, but can't really see one which works live as opposed to just recording in old videos...
    Any help much appreciated... :D

    The EyeTV picks up both digital and analog coax signal. It seems like it should work for your NES.

    Thanks guys... I'll check them out...

    O I should've mentioned, I bought an EyeTV for DTT (Cynergy2) which is one of the older ones and it turns out it is a receiver only and although it has a coaxial port, it doesn't covert from analogue to digital... :(

    Anyone know of one which definitely does support converting analogue to digital live (ie not recording in necessarily)?

    This sounds like it could be the one... Unless there's a cheaper alternative... :D
