If your computer accepts some kind of audio and video in, you can play on your pc. The ports on your 6600 may just be audio and video out.

Anyone who is interested there is a USB peripheral that you hook up on your PC that gives you 3 composite slots (video L and R audio) this thing also records gameplay videos @ 30 FPS price? how about a low 14.99  (24.99 if you also want a TV tuner).

Well you can play your consoles on it and taking screenshots and making videos are secondary features of it the big drawback to this is no progressive scan.

I asked my computer tech friend about that unit (printed the page to show him).  he said it was a good price but was concerned that because of the gamecube going into the adapter then through the computer then to moniter that there *may* be some lag involved.   Maybe there is none, but it is something to consider.  Post a review of it if you decide to give it a shot.  I bet a bunch of people will do this with their soon to be unneeded Gamecube as they get their new Wii hooked up.

Well, this review asserts that there's no lag... I just ordered one to try for myself, so I'll let you all know what I think when I get it.

Thank you, Lord de seis, for the link
