    You need this cable for your 360 - should be able to get it anywhere the 360 is sold for $30.

    Use the cable that came with your Eye TV and plug it in.

    Do NOT connect the yellow (composite) cable (unless you want the worst picture possible with your 360).

    Connect the s-video cable.
    You also have a 2-1 adapter that came with the EyeTV, one side plugs into the mini-plug, the other side you will plug in the red and white cables from the 360.

    To change to the s-video connection - In EyeTV on the Menu bar click on Controls - select s-video at the bottom of the menu.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Well, it depends on what you want to do with it. There are no media center extensions for Mac/Xbox, so I assume you want to share your Mac's Internet connection. If that's true, I recommend you buy a router and connect your Xbox to it so that it has its own Internet connection.

    In the EyeTV Software, go to Controls > S-Video Input . All other available inputs are also listed here.

    Eye TV won't change channels
    Hi, I am a newbe here and to Mac. I have a Macbook and I am trying to set Eye TV on it. I recieve TV via Dish Network. I have, after some fiddling around, got the channels downloaded. The problem is now the thing won't change channels. I have to do it via my Dish Network remote. This is ok except I can't set it up to record anything. I can't figure this thing out.
