    im trying to play games on my iMac C2D using a dazzle hollywood dv bridge, but i dont know which software to use. is this even possible to do? i dont want to spend money on a new tv or other things. thanks!

    EDIT: okay, so i tried imovie and previewed the window until the game got started, and there was a buzzing noise in the background the whole time, and i couldn't do a full screen preview. i also tried btv, and it wouldn't even read my dv bridge. is there anything else?

    EDIT 2: i fixed the buzzing noise in imovie, i just need to get it fullscreen. is there a way?

    Wait, you're trying to play video games on your iMac utilizing a analog to dv converter??

    What do you mean as in "Play"? As in playing back video game footage captured? Or as in actually playing a video game on your computer? Do you have a console hooked up to the analog dv converter that you're trying to have displayed on your iMac screen?? Be a little more specific.
