    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.

    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.
