How do I record Wii gameplay using EyeTV on Mac?

Hey Escapists, howzit hangin'?

I need some help regarding capturing gameplay footage. I have the following:

The wii, and all that comes with it.

Elgato eyetv 200

EyeTV software (installed and verified)

Double ended Audio Video Cord

Connector for EyeTV to Laptop.

I think I need:

Audio/video splitters

But don't know what type in order to get the audio and video to work fully. And yes, a few milliseconds of lag is tolerable.

I've looked up some guides, but can't find specific enough answers. Please let me know if any of you have experience setting this stuff up. Thanks.

wow, I see the problem you have. This guide:

I'm guessing the setup won't be so different for Wii, you should still have an RGB out to plug into the recorder.

I hope this helps.

Edit:
I found one guide for a simmilar device:

That uses 3 of these:

That might also work for yours
