    okay. i'm going on a goodwill tour with my school's band, and my friends are taking their gamecube. however, the only way for us to play is on a 5.4 inch mini screen made for the gamecube.

    is there any way for me to use my powerbook (15" Titanium) as a screen for the gamecube??

    good question... i'm in a similar situation except with my 12" PB. Any suggestions to hook up my xbox to the PB and use the screen to play it on?

    pretty sure that you'd need something like an eyeTV to capture video on any computer, saving towers with special cards in back. sry

    You'll need some sort of USB- or Firewire-based TV tuner or video adapter. You can't just plug the Gamecube into the Powerbook and have it work.

    looks like EyeTV 200 Firewire will be my best bet to play the xbox on the PB...

    save your money unless you enjoy a 2-3 second response delay, i.e. you fire a gun with the control, 3 seconds later you see yourself on screen shooting... :mad:
