    Going through my brother's shelves yesterday looking for a charger, I came across our old gamecube. I would like to use my MPB as a display for the gamecube, but I don't know what kind of adapter I need. I know the gamecube comes with those red, yellow and white RCA cables; can some please tell me the name of the adapter needed to connect it with my unibody MPB? Help is greatly appreciated, and if anyone has a link to a pic of the adapter / a place I can buy it online, that would be really helpful. Thanks!

    The delay will make any game unplayable, because you need an external USB or FW video capture card.

    :( Oh well.

    Thanks for the reply. If I have a cheap monitor lying around can I connect that to the gamecube? Is there any monitor that can be used as a display for it?

    Yes, as long as it has inputs ...

    You can use the inputs on an EyeTV Hybrid to play games. It doesn't look great. Just turn off live recording when you play to remove the lag.
