You will need TV TUNER. There are no cables or software that will do conversion. :-)

some notebooks have built in TV out adapters like the DELL latitude cpi's the symbol is a square with an arrow pointing to it, what notebook do you have?

You can buy an external USB TV tuner and get TV on your notebook and record it.

No as I said, you need some kind of capture device, the yellow output is....well a output to show thingys on tv or other screen FROM your notebook.

If you want to see tv ON your notebook you need a capture device, some pc & notebooks have a 'Video in' if your computer have one you can get a picture from an external source and watch it on your computer, if not you need some kind of capture card, video card, usb device to get a picture on your pc.

The cards usually come with a software program to record, though the Margi might not.  In that case, Pinnacle Studio 9 should work.
