    I will hopefully be geting an Xbox soon. Hopefully.....Anyway I was wondering if it is possible to hook up an Xbox to my iBook. Though it is a lot more fun to play it on the TV sometimes I may want to play it on my iBook. Is this possible?

    From FAQ:

    Q: Can I connect my PlayStation/GameCube/XBox to EyeTV?

    A: You can, but playing on the EyeTV display won´t be much fun since the MPEG decoding mechanism currently employed by EyeTV introduces a delay of about 1.5 seconds. In other words, it always takes about 1.5 seconds before the results of a game controller command are displayed in the EyeTV window. EyeTV is a great solution to record your gameplay though.

    I never said it could be done well ;) But it can be done.

    There are probably more real time based tv tuners, but you would pay through the nose anyways.

    I would just get an LCD add-on like this instead.

    There are does DV bridges you can purchase, hook up your X-Box, and play fullscreen through iMovie. Well, that's what I did when my friends bring over their consoles.
