Default A quick question!

Is it possible to hook up your laptop to your TV (with some type of cord) in order to show what is displayed on the TV on the Laptop screen instead?

I ask this because I want to be able to play PS2 and XBox using my laptop screen instead of the TV itself...

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You can do it with a normal pc with a tv card, I don't know if they do them for laptops.


btw, your sig is oversized.

I don't think so.

And your sig IS way too big.
