Is it possible?

Hi, been awhile again since i have been on here lol. But i have a laptop with an hdmi output to connect that into a monitor or another lcd/led hdtv as an external monitor. I would like to connect my xbox 360 to it using an hdmi cable to play some games. The thing is, i am pretty sure it is possible using a program or whatever is there available. So i thought if anyone on these forums would know something about that. I know it isnt probably possible, but its worth a shot to know about it. I would like to play my xbox 360 on my laptop
Thanks in advance.

Let me get htis straight. Your computer has HDMI OUTPUT, and you want to use the xbox to play games on the comptuer, correct? I am not a gamer so useless, but how does having output on the compuuter allow you to input to the computer?

Laptop's HDMI = "out", TVs, AV Receiver's = "in", short answer, you can't use your laptop to display Xbox360...

I would second this.

Just for the heck of it, I have my XBox 360 hooked into my monitor through my unused VGA port, so with the push of a button on the bottom of the screen, I can change to XBox or PC.
If you use a second monitor with your laptop, you could get a cheap KVM switch and use that.

Yep, that's your answer. You can't expect software to suddenly make a port bi-directional, if it wasn't designed to be one in the first place. If you saw someone playing an XBOX on their laptop, they likely had it connected to a TV Tuner card.
