    Wondering how or if I can display my MBP screen next to live TV. I'd like to watch football games with my Yahoo Stat Tracker (for fantasy football) window up right next to it.

    The obvious answer is to just simply open up my MBP right next to the TV, but there isn't a "wow" factor into that, so let's get that out of the way.

    not sure what your asking but are you saying have half your TV display the cable in and the other half your MBP connection?

    does your TV have PIP, did you try having one input on the PIP your MBP and the other half your Cable/Satalite?

    Do you mean you want to be able to display live TV in a window on your MBP built in monitor? (one screen)

    Or do you mean you want to be able to drive a display with your MBP next to your existing television screen? (two screens)

    Or do you mean you want to be able to display your MBP screen AND live TV on your existing television simultaneously? (one screen)

    All three of these are possible.
