Xbox connecting

Anyone know of any way to connect my Xbox360 to my laptop to play using its screen? Or even connect to an old tv that is lacking rca input slots?

I dread an entire summer working without the xbox lol.

For your TV use a RF modulator. Found that one on Amazon for under $10
And for your laptop, you cannot use the screen unless there is a video input connection. I've never heard of a laptop with a video input feature.

Not thinking it does. None of the xbox cords match up to any plug ins

You might look for something like this. It's S-Video to USB.

I know of a guy on XDA-Developers.net who got a PS3 player to play through the Motorola Atrix Lapdock. The lapdock has a mini-HDMI input. You can pick up the lapdock for about $60.

Either that or a smaller LCD tv with PC inputs. If it has PC inputs as well, you could use it as a second monitor on your laptop when you're not using it for the xbox or tv.
