VGA recorders are sadly expensive. And "breaking out" the signal is not going to help as it's is not any "component video" or other standard.

I have 2 computers, one running Windows XP and one running Windows 98. I want to capture video from the Windows 98 machine by splitting the VGA output into component RGB connections, then routing that signal to a capture card in the XP machine. Are there any precautions I need to take to ensure that any hardware doesn't get damaged? Such as resolution changes and recommended refresh rate? I wish I could use a screen recorder for this, but Windows 98 can't run on the hardware of my XP machine and my Win98 machine isn't fast enough to record the screen.
