The box you want is a capture card.

There are many on the market, sold by Hauppage, Dazzle and the like
and the like. The good news is that most of them support both PAL and
NTSC signals (there's usually an option to pick which signal format
the incoming signal is in the software). Dick Smith,

If you have a relatively modern computer, there are ones that work via USB.

Avoid the ones with TV tuners as they may not allow changing the video system.

AusPC Market seems to have a few - http://www.auspcmarket.com.au/ -
Look under Video Cards -> Input -> Video Capture / Surveillance
