Try typing "Canopus ADVC-55" and "Canopus ADVC-110" into a search engine (Google Shopping's a good place to start)

I use my EyeTV for this as well, it works great and puts the vids right into iTunes which is handy. . .

Does it automatically reduce the picture size to 320x240, or do you get a choice?

Just checked out the ADVC55 which certainly has the connection I was looking for with firewire to composite - can't seem to find how the EyeTV would connect to the video though .....

Thanks very much for your advice though - least I know it can be done!!

There's also the Pinnacle Video Capture for Mac, which is worth putting into a search engine. There's a review here: http://www.techtalkforfamilies.com/review/computers_and_peripherals/review_pinnacle_video_capture_for_mac

If you were to buy an EyeTV device (made by Elgato) it will include an A/V input cable, with S-video and composite along with an Audio input.

Choice. You would "export" it like you would a regular TV recording. So, you can send it to iTunes, Toast, etc. whatever you regular exporting options you get with Video you record from the aux. input as well. I've done a bunch of old John Wayne movies for my father that he had on VHS, I recorded them with EyeTV, then exported to Toast. Turned out well, it even included some groovy menus!

Any of them except the H.264 Turbo. EyeTV250 is popular as is the Hybrid.

The HD Home Rum won't do it either - you need one of the EyeTV devices with an Analog tuner in it, like the 250 Plus.
