The AIW breakout box ought to already have the proper cable. Just plug your RCA jacks into the breakout box, then plug the audio pigtail from the breakout box into your sound card.

I'm not; I stated $200 plus shipping. But that's the limit of what I'm able/willing to spend, at least at this time. If I come across more PAL material to digitize I would be willing to offer more at...

By five seconds, of course. So only do it once a year. Better yet, do it at night using infrared light and military-grade night vision goggles. Oops, those don't see color (voice of experience,...

What software are you using for capture? VirtualDub 1.9 certainly does support capture in 768 by 576 format, although you may have to scroll down to see that option (it's at the bottom of the menu)....

You can only do what you can do. If you don't have climate controlled storage, eliminating the humidity will be a lot better than nothing.
