Hello, I am looking for help in connecting my Xbox game system to a pc laptop to play. I am unsure what hardware I need to buy to make this work. I can't play the system on the television I have. It doesn't have any inputs available. Please tell me what I need to buy to make my Xbox work. Thanks!

Well I'm not sure it would be possible with a laptop but i can tell you what you need a LCD monitor screen. So you will need 1. DVI input 2. DVI -> High Definition TV 3. HDD conectors for x box 360 (comes with premium system). If your laptop has a DVI port then it is possible.


Edit: I use old tvs with no a/v inputs for x boxs. Just hook a VCR or DVD player up to the tv and connect it through there.

If I have an old TV without AV input, just cable, can I use an RF adapter to play my Xbox?

This is what you are looking for. It will prolly run you $20-$30. I still have to suggest just connecting the xbox through a VCR (which you can also get for $30).
