I personally used an Easycap capture card when I was live streaming. It's not the greatest quality ever (and cant capture in HD), but it's really cheap (cost me about £5) and works better than I expected for sure.

My set up is to split my video signal using 3 Y splitters (one for each of the 3 cables on a composite lead) between my capture card and my TV, that way I can play properly as the capture card recording will have a lot of lag.

An alternative route would be to run your systems through your computer/laptop monitor using a VGA lead, then use a screen capture software such as XSplit (paid, but has a free trial) or OBS (free, but in beta) to record it. This might give you a better video quality too.
