Connecting Macbook Pro to TV/Xbox Etc

Recently bought my Macbook Pro - I know its capable of displaying what you can see on your Macbook on your telly, but can you do it vice versa? Basically what im asking is when you connect for example - your xbox to your telly via a HDMI cable, can you then connect it to your Macbook - so I could be using my Macbook screen to view my Xbox?

No, that won't work. The MBP has video out, but not video in.

You need a video capture device like the Intensity Extreme, but I do not know, how well the live display is with that kind of hardware and HDMI video sources.

I'm from the U.K. - do you know a U.K. website which sells the same/similiar product to that?

Nope, but a Google Shopping search should provide results for your specific country, shan't it?
