Wireless bird cam to PC

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi there.

My father as a recent retirement present was bought a wireless bird nest camera that attaches into a nesting box, wirelessly transmits into the home and connects at this point to our TV using RCA connections. however he would like to put this to his PC so he can record bits onto the HDD etc... can anyone suggest a card suitable to do this, nothing too expensive as its really only for this sole purpose he needs it. I admit i get lost a bit with regards to Graphics and input/output connections.

Cheers

First off, welcome to OCN!

I am pulling this from memory. Back in the old days, ATI's All-in-Wonder graphics cards can also double up as a video capture card. But lately, I have not seen it being advertised that much.

Anyway, I think you simply need a Video Capture device which should be much cheaper than getting any graphics card.
Eg EasyCap USB 2.0 Video and Audio Capture card (which is not physically a card but an USB device). Just install its driver and plug your current bird nest web cam's wireless receiver into the yellow RCA video input plug and you are all set.

Here is a Google translated link showing a little installation demonstration. The translation is not very good but the pictures should be easily understood.
