I think vista allows something like that... I think you need a video inlet and.... that's as far as i know, i know that much that it... lol srry, tried to do the same with my PS2, but i don't have an inlet video or audio... however i was able to do it with my portable DVD player! WOOT! (Crummy quality though... lol)

I would assume you need some type of a vivo card or a tv tuner.
