    Ok this is probably a really lame question but is there any way of attaching my Xbox to my FP iMac so that I can use its screen to play my xbox. Is there some sort of usb dongle that I can plug my xbox into? I can't use it with my TV (TV is in my baby's room... small house.)

    Sorry, I asked a similar question a while back and I was told by members of this forum that it´s not possible.
    Please correct me if I´m wrong

    There are ways, but the quality sucks and the price is ridiculous, probably several hundred dollars for the device. For that amount of money, it would probably be cheaper to buy a simple 25" TV just for the Xbox. The quality will be a lot better and it will be a bigger screen.

    Yeah can't find the thread either, but FYI XBOXes & Macs don't tend to play too well together. You're definitely better off just buying a new TV.

    I kind of figured this would be the answer.

    EyeTV USB Wonder 2.0

    Yes, you can hook up your Xbox, PS2, Gamecube, Atari 2600 or whatever else you want to your Mac. Go to the Elgato website and check out the EyeTV USB Wonder 2.0. I have that and it works great for gaming. There is no Mpeg encoder on it, so there is no delay in getting the signal to your screen as there is in other TV tuners.
    The other big positive is you can use your Mac as PVR with this as well, and it's only $150 US or so (I paid about $200 Canadian)

    Let me know if you have any questions about it and I'll help you out.
