    I do not want to have a TV in my dorm room this fall.
    Is it possible to use my 360 through any tuner boxes/cards that are currently on the market?
    I'd prefer component connection of course, but I could live with composite.
    My room will have a decent cable package as well, so coax + one of the other inputs would be a real bonus.

    I am getting either a high end MBP or high end iMac for christmas... maybe sooner.

    Also, any suggestions on speakers that could be attached RCA to 360, and 1/8" to my Mac simultaneously would be really appreciated.

    i'm not that familiar with mac tuner boxes...but you are basically left with using some kind of usb or firewire option, no cards for an imac or mbp. other than elgato type tuners I don't know much, but you need to see if there is any delay in the video of the tuner. sometimes this is caused by the "tv" software used.

    i've played games on my pc with an ati tuner, but had to use third party software cause the ati software had a delay that made playing games unbearable.
