Play Xbox 360 through laptop?
Is it possible to play my xbox360 through my laptop?

I have a DELL inspiron 9300 widescreen laptop, bought 01/06. It has xp and windows media centre. it also has what looks like a tv input (i live in the UK, is it the same as everywhere else?) in the back.

Unless your laptop as a VGA in port, there is NO way to connect your Xbox 360 to your laptop. Most laptops have VGA out and/or S-Video out, but I haven't seen any that have in ports.

There is a work around. Adaptec released something called the Adaptec Gamebridge. I think its discontinued now, but you can find it all over the internet. MSRP is $59.99, but I found one for $10.00. Just Google it. It is a box that allows you to plug the RCA or S-Video cables directly into it, and then it connects directly to you computer through a USB 2.0 port. Graphics, however, are not enhanced, as the box claims. I use component HD cable to connect my Xbox to my television, and the graphics are significantly poorer quality then on my TV. The sound also skips. Check it out though, I've used it and it is an ok temporary fix if you are on the road or LAN-ing up with some buddies.
