    I am moving soon and my room in my new house is going to be way smaller than the one I have now. After my bed and desk, I dont think I'm going to have much room for a TV. My 2 roommates and all my other friends are Halo fanatics, and we LAN almost everynight.

    Is there any sort of adapter I can buy so I can hook my Xbox up to my 15" TiBook?

    That would be super-mega cool, that way I could have my TiBook, scanner and Wacom tablet on my desk with plenty of room to spare.

    Any ideas?

    you could also get the lower version, which is 269 through formac

    http://www.formac.com/p_bin/?cid=solutions_converters_studiodv

    basically, you just need some device that will allow for rca in from the xbox... i have the 269 one, and it works pretty well, once you get past formac's crap customer service.

    you could also look at things like the "dazzle", and some other rca in type devices... check out macmall or something duuuuude

    good luck

    I have had very, very bad experiences with MyTV. If I remember, it was devilishly laggy and we had tons of trouble getting the sound to work. The resolution was small, and the customer service did nothing to help.

    USB tuners/capture devices won't cut it, they have a 1-2 second delay due to the compression of the signal, you're going to have to pay up for a firewire one.

    That's what i was just looking at. The lag would be a deal killer. FW, here I come.
