    Sure, if you get an external TV tuner that supports OSX.

    Do you want to capture TV or from another source?

    I love the Elgato EyeTV range and would definitely recommend that... IF the OP wants to record tv. If he wants to capture from other sources, then there is one better product for that task.

    Another vote here for Elgato and EyeTV.

    Elgato makes a range of EyeTV hardware suitable for receiving analogue terrestrial, digital terrestrial, satellite and cable television.

    Some of their models will also accept an input from (say) a VHS video recorder or a games console, allowing you to capture content from those sources too - but there are other ways of doing this too.

    Go to their website and pick the one for you.

    All Elgato hardware comes bundled with the EyeTV 2 software, which absolutely rocks. From there you can export to iTunes for viewing on an iPod or :apple:TV. Don't settle for anything else.

    If you also get Toast 8 Titanium, you can burn your recordings to DVD.

    I don't know what product WildPalms is referring to... but...

    I've found that the best way to capture VHS video is to record it onto a DVD-R using a domestic DVD Recorder, and then rip it to the Mac using Toast (which can read the unencrypted DVD-VR logical format that my DVD Recorder uses). I used to muck around with a Miglia SCART-DV converter and iMovie, but my new way is much less hassle.
