    is there any software that allows you to do this, such as those things that let you turn your computer into a tv or something?

    I'm sure I read somewhere you must stick a Zune into any orifice in the XBox, and then wirelessly connect to a MBA...:D

    Sorry, couldn't resist...

    I do not believe this is possible, otherwise I'm sure it'd be widely publicised.

    yea, i know i've seen simular things for pc which allow you to play and record your console games....although i don't think it would be in HD (at least on the mac one) since it has only an anaolog cable

    i just poo'd my pants laughing haha

    using a tv tuner or any other kind of plugin for gaming, it will be useless and unplayable from the lag.

    One of the editors of a blog I read gave a good review to the eyeTV products. The specific one he reviewed was, I believe, the Hybrid. I've heard lots of good things about them, you might want to check it out.

    the hybrid works great with a 360, but you only get composite video. No high def.

    no high def rules that idea out then. if it was, i would be tempted to get the 17" hd mbp and get rid of my 40" hdtv, lol.

    yeah, as long as you get a tv tuner with "game mode" to eiminate lag, but yeah, i don;t think any of them can do that with an hd signal yet, you;d get some lag and its going to look like garbage in sd. I'm running one on my 22" at 1680x1050 and I ahve to run it at 1280x1024 widescreen mode thought the vga adapter, and it looks even a little fuzzy at that rez.
