    Hey folks. I am wondering if it's possible to use my Macbook Pro's screen as a display for my Xbox 360. I have the Xbox 360 VGA cable and a VGA-to-DVI converter, so am I going to be able to lay in my bed and play my 360 on my Laptop's screen? I've tried, but to no success. Is there a trick to it that I don't know? Thanks!

    P.S. - Yes, I googled it :p
    P.P.S. - and if the answer is a quick 'no', I thank you for your time and sorry for the annoying n00b question.

    I don't think it is. Reason being is that the Laptops don't have any inputs for their displays, only outputs. That DVI port on the side of the MBP - to my experience and knowledge - can only be used as a dual monitor output. I know that you can do some gaming setup via eyetv, but I have no experience with it, and to my understanding there may even be a slight lag with it.
