You mean us the macbook as a screen for the Xbox?

Yeah, you just need to get a usb tv tuner for you macbook. Although, be warned, some of them have a slight delay so gaming with them isn't very possible.

I wouldn't spend a lot of time trying to do this, like Stretch said the results will be pretty ineffective.

I use EyeTV Hybrid to connect my PS2; sometimes you can tell there's a slight delay (usually when running other programs in the background), but for the most part it's perfect (and I'm using an older G4).

They can't, a notebook monitor is busy displaying the output from the notebook.
