    I know there is ways to run a xbox 360 into the macbook, but I was wondering how exactly. I have a 2.8ghz unibody pro. What is the cheapest and best way to do this?

    Not sure how this will still work with the new unibodies, but try some of the things mentioned in this thread. Full search results can be found here.

    I agree with RKpro. I tried a ATI tuner card a few years back to try to play my PS2 and GameCube on my PC monitor and there was lag worse than the delay you feel with some LCD HDTV's (before calibration). Unless they made major advances where the delay doesn't exist, I wouldn't recommend putting down the cash just to have a "portable" 360.

    The delay is never going to get "fixed" it is just the nature of tv tuners.

    You CAN input the signal but you won't be able to play because they usually all induce a 1.5 - 2.5 second delay

    Elgato EyeTV has "video game mode" where the lag is virtually nonexistent, but be warned that video resolution is limited to about 480p.
