Capturing Video Game Screenshots/Video

By LilBuddha22

  1. I'm looking to be able to take screenshots and/or video of video games off my television and save them on my PC. I am pretty uninformed about technical aspects of computing so go easy on me please. My questions are:

    1. What will I need to hook everything up properly? My current HDTV has PC input but I have no clue how I would run a game console through one TV input when the PC input is different - do I need to hook the console up directly to my computer somehow?
    2. What software do I use? Is there any FREE software that allows me to do this?

    Maybe I'm missing something and there's an easier way altogether?

    Once again, please excuse my ignorance.

    Thanks
