Actually, nameless winky-smiley person (apparently hailing from Winnipeg) is right–you could use a camcorder with a DV passthrough to do that. There are a few other boxes on the market that do that (notably made by ADS Technology, Canopus, Pinnacle Systems). However, a number of them have to be plugged into the wall. It sounds like what you might be looking for is a small TV tuner that also happens to have an A/V input. The two names that readily come to mind are Hauppauge and Pinnacle Systems (though there are certainly others-neither of these quick lists of product manufacturers constitutes a complete list).
something like this will it work for me?
Canopus ADVC-110 A/D CONVERTER
Plextor ConvertX PX-M402U Digital Video Converter
The problem is that, i cannot find whether i can directly use it to watch at the same time it is converting my analogue movies to digital ones
