Is there any way i could get input to my MBP so i could use my screen to watch TV or plug my xbox 360? I know there is a output plug but i kindda suck at all those video plug thing so i thought i'd ask here.

You can use a TV tuner card which pretty much brings cable into your computer. The other option would be running it through a video camera then from the video camera via firewire to the MBP.

If you have a video camera that can do that, that's a great idea...
