Does anyone know of a way to play your xbox on your laptop? Is there any reliable product that will let the video signal from your xbox be sent to your laptop without too much loss in resolution?
Thanks

Wouldn't a VGA adapter work? If so, I know there is atleast one made...I think you can pick it up an www.lik-sang.com

In fact, I think this is one right here: http://www.lik-sang.com/info.php?category=53&products_id=3166&

There is a new, much better vga adapter out that supports HD and allows you to use 1280x720 resolution on your computer, but i forget who makes it :cry: Casper may remember, ask him ;)

yeah, i would like to find out about hooking up my box to my laptop as well. One of these days i may have to bring my laptop/xbox to school w/ me and play during my break. Im not sure if the vga thing would work, however...at least not on my laptop, all i have is video output, not input.

This is the $h!t when it come to VGA on a monitor but you would have to have monitor video inputs and I have yet to see a laptop with such inputs... Sorry.

What is the advantage of playing the Xbox on your laptop?

Two words. LAN Party! You can't carry a full-sized tv over there easily, and those tiny ~5.6 in. attachable LCD just aren't enough! How many laptops have an input, especially audio also, though?
