    Quick question

    Am currently working away from home and staying in a small room, wondered if I can connect my xbox 360 to my MBP and use its little 15 inch screen for my games?

    anyone know

    Thanks for the assist

    Pretty sure you need a video in device like a TV tuner of sorts and I suspect there'd be a delay. Someone asked that question here I think once and someone else recommended using an EyeTV hybrid to achieve this ... perhaps try that.

    I believe EyeTV, or any tuner will have too much of a lag for video games. That is what I have heard at least.
