    Hi everyone.

    I'm starting a project to capture video (and perhaps sound) from my arcade game cabinet.

    The image is sent to the screen (a Toshiba Rear Projection TV in case that is important) via component BNC connectors. I would need to split this so that the signal was still sent to the screen as well as my laptop. I plan to do this initial step using BNC T splitters on each cable. I guess what I would need then is some sort of converter than can take a component BNC signal and output it as S-video or Composite.

    What do you guys think?

    The game is from 1996 so I'm guessing the signal would be SD PAL but I don't know for sure. Personally I wouldn't think it was anything advanced since the screen is a fairly domestic Toshiba RPTV.

    Thanks for any advice it's gratefully received!

    Having thought about this more... Would it be possible to use bnc to male phono adapters and then plug the source into something like this?
