    I am assuming this is still impossible, but I thought I'd ask. I have an early 2010 MBP (no Thunderbolt) with Firewire 800 / USB 2.0

    Is there any way to get HD video input to show up on my screen? I understand it would take some kind of adapter.

    I ask, because I'd like to use my macbook as a monitor at a gaming LAN this summer instead of buying a monitor.

    Thanks!

    you can get an hd pvr or something from elgato.

    But it will be a miserable experience and you will regret every last second of it. The lag is unbearable.

    Don't even bother. It's going to be horrible.
