    Recently i got my uMBP and hooked up bootcamp and games, and finally have a comp that can play games pretty well, but i was wondering, looking and my nice 15" screen if there was any way i could play my 360 on it...? i have a crappy little 20" crt and its horrible for playing games. SO? does it have some sort of video in? i googled and didnt find anything helpfull, thinking some of you macsperts could help

    (macsperts?, macperts?, i like where im going with it...)

    You would need something to convert the output of the 360 to USB2 or Firewire. Then you can use one of several apps to get full screen previews/monitoring of the video.

    In my experience using an external hardware decoder for TV-in there is always a delay that makes the game feels sluggish.
