    360 to Macbook Pro?
    I'm going on vacation soon and I know the hotel i'm going to doesnt have TV's that allow hooking up your own gaming console...

    I wanted to hook up my xbox360 to my MBP possibly to use as a screen?

    What connector do I need and where can I get it? (I Have best buy, walmart..etc around me)

    I just need the name (and pic pref) of whatever connector if possible..

    Help ASAP appreciated.

    You'll have to buy one of the EyeTV models.

    Specs:
    15" MBP '06 2.33 C2D 4GB 10.7; 13" MBA '14 1.8 i7 8GB 10.11; 21" iMac '13 2.9 i5 8GB 10.11; 6S
    And before you spend the money on an EyeTV device, would suggest you call the hotel to verify this. Every consumer grade TV made in the last 20+ years have had composite inputs on them. Older ones maybe only on the rear of the set instead of in front. Can't imagine any hotel large enough to be ordering enough units for their own model direct from the manufacturer would have requested sets without this.

    We are both aware of that, however, it doesn't make a lot of sense to spend $100-150 on an EyeTV device (or something similar) just for vacation if it can be connected to the TV.
    But, that is up to your discretion.
