    Is there a way to play my xbox 360 using my macbook pro? Using the monitor that is to play the games instead of a tv.

    Certainly not a stupid question, but I am going to have to say no you can't use your LCD to play xbox 360 games.

    I don't think there is a way to switch the DVI port to work as an input.

    No you can't. Simply because the Video connection on your MacBook/MacBookPro is an Output Only.

    If you used the search utility first, you would of known, there are many threads regarding this and your not the first to ask... so don't feel silly or stupid.

    I've heard of people successfully using an El Gato's EyeTV Hybrid to hook up and play their xbox 360 to their iMacs big beautiful screens. Don't see why it wouldn't work for the MBPs. They didn't report any lag either.
