    Default Cheapest method of capturing PAL Mega Drive footage to Laptop

    Hi All,
    I'd like to capture footage from my PAL Mega drive. I don't have a PC unfortunately only a beefy laptop :/ I presently have a euro scart cable for my first gen model 1 mega drive.

    Hope someone can help!

    Matt

    Get one of those USB video capture devices from China. Less than 6 bucks.

    Should probably have put a budget next to this! Capture device 50 and cable up to 30

    So I understand the MD doesn't have an S-Video signal, so I can get RGB out of the MD but I'd need a Framemeister XRGB... HA fat chance of me getting one of those! So looks like shitty Composite for me

    SCART to HDMI adapter, dirt cheap HDMI capture box, then? I'm watching "NEW HD Video Game Capture 1080P HDMI YPBPR One Click Recorder+Power Adapter+Line" on ebay, but I'd rather wait to get something that can do 1080 @ 60fps instead. I'm looking for a PCI Express job that can replace my failing Avermedia card without breaking the bank, because I get all of three views a week on MerchanTube.

    You could borrow mine if you like. Let me know.

    You have a framemeister??? Pricey piece of kit I'm not sure I'd feel comfortable borrow something so expensive. I think I'll do 3 or 4 more mega drive programming guides via composite for now using a mix of cheap capture equipment

    If successful I'll appeal to people that I'd like to purchase an OPEN SOURCE SCAN CONVERTER to show what's happening on real hardware with more clarity. I'll put up some of my own money from Christmas to show commitment (I'm still a student for 8 months unfortunately).
