    You can with any of the USB tuners or RCA->USB adapters, but the problem is the delay inherent with running video through a computer. It is not much, but it is enough on most games to cause your infinite death.

    Well it said PAL 60 hz. IF you're not in the UK then I don't think that applies to you.

    There are many people from UK here who are not very happy about the fact that it is cheaper to fly to us, buy there and come back than buying here. Although the higher education store discount is sweet :D.
