    Im not sure if I understand you here, but I don't think what you want to do is possible. It seams that you want to use your PB as a display. Your PB only has a video OUT. You would need a video IN so your GameCube can send the signal TO you PB. Im not aware of anything that can do this.

    I personally use Formac Studio TVR for similar purpose. But there is a slight lag. Maybe half a second or less. So when I play a game that require split second timing, it doesn't work too well.

    Maybe Elgato Eye TV performs better?

    no eye tv is usb, it would be far slower then the formac, which is firewire.

    I remember when my PowerBook G3 came out, there was a cardbus video card/input that you could get that was supposed to be good, but it was pretty expensive and I don't know if they make those anymore. I can't remember the name, but I don't even know of any cardbus stuff that is even made anymore, nor do I know if they are fast enough to use with a video game system.
