post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
okay i know i have seen ppl make laptops work with xbox360. i know on the back i have a dvi port. not sure if its a input or output... but i was wondering if its just a cable that i could use to convert the signal?

Use the Xbox VGA Adapter then get a DVI to VGA adapter. Can the DVI on your laptop be used for output and input?

i would say its because the computer screen is 'dvi in' unlike your laptop which is 'dvi out'.
pretty sure it then becomes a hardware mod.

It won't work for the same reason jed told you it won't work with DVI. Those ports are for outgoing signals only.
