    You mean a capture card for composite video? You won´t have any luck finding it as companies nearly never show their internal documents.

    Could I just use a ntsc decoder?

    Answering a question with another completely different question is not going anywhere.
    What are you trying to accomplish?

    I would imagine you can't beat either the price or performance of off-the-shelf hardware - http://www.usb-ware.com/express-capture-dvd-uecd200.htm.

    The sound portion is something any sound card can handle, but the composite video is a bit busier. I would want to convert it to RGB and convert those signals.
