    I'm fairly certain that's not possible.

    Could be wrong.

    look into the eyetv products. I used to be able to hook up my gamcube to my macbook via the standard red/white/yellow cables back in the day. The latency was not an issue either, which was a pleasant surprise

    they may have the option for hdmi or another interface these days. who knows

    Good point. I'm not to sure on the internals of the MacBook Pro. Or ThunderBolt. I pass I'm afraid.

    See this post. No HDMI, but at least it's a solution.
