Was wondering if there was any software for my laptop Toshiba Satellite U440 that would act as an HDMI input? Basically if i could hook up my xbox 360 to my laptop using an hdmi cable and play mw3? I doubt there is but just wondering btw im running windows vista HP.

Laptop screens do not support line in from none proprietory hardware. In short, no. Do you not have a decent televison? Chances are your t.v is higher res then you laptop moniter

that port is out only. if it was an input as well it still wouldnt be a good idea because any game you would play would have a 1/4 second to 2 second lag time. depending on how well the manufacturer managed to get it. it would be ok on games like The Sims but for Halo it would be terrible.

The short answer is NO. The LCD on a notebook/laptop can't be accessed with the system's on-board HDMI port. The HDMI port on the notebook/laptop is an output port, not an input port.

Sorry.

I use my laptop as a TV all the time, well at work. I pack my laptop and xbox, and play at work. It is possible, it's a portable TV for me. I just plug in the HDMI from the xbox to my laptop.

How do you do this? Is there a trick to it? Or certain hardware/software?
