Beats me. A custom cable with some smarts in the plug ? I repeat: Analogue signals are NOT compatible with USB.

Its conceivable this is a very very small video capture unit.

You won't be able to wire and RCA cable to a USB plug and be able to have any kind of audio or video going to or from your PC. Also an RCA connector isn't exactly the best choice for a power connection. If your trying to connect the RCA cable to the power of the USB.

+1 RCA is analog, USB is digital. They are two totally different things.
