Capturing live output from laptop

Hello,
I’m trying to capture the live output from a PC Laptop, outputting from Resolume in S-Video, to be able to do something with it with Jitter 1.6 running on a MacBookPro. I tried the Canopus ADVC-100 and did experience some weird pixelisation, and a kind of color distortion (darker color, with much less contrast). The goal is to output the Jitter rendering on a projector in a live set.
Does anyone knows if the DFG-1394 would be better than the canopus? Or do anyone has an idea of a better setup?
Thanks!

Any time you go out the s-video output you’re going to get major
distortion like blurred edges and color munging. On a cursory look, I
noticed that Resolume can transfer data over a network connection:
http://www.resolume.com/features/networkstreaming.php . This is the
best solution. I don’t know if they have a specific protocol or if
they even publish it, but this is clearly the way to go. Use a
crossover cable between the 2 ‘puters to do this.

best,
wes
