I tried to do this when I moved onto my boat, because we don't have a TV. The sad truth is, you can't. The best way to do it is to buy a TV tuner for your laptop, and use the aux. in cables that usually come with it. The problem with that is all of the programs that are available for TV tuners give you a long 2 second delay. That means when you push the controller button, two seconds later it happens on the screen. I've tried it myself. Once you get used to it you might be able to play it, but it would take a lot of getting used to. Good Luck!

k thx

Plug video capture hardware into your laptop, plug the xbox's video output into the video capture hardware, run the software which comes with that hardware to display the video in on your laptop screen. Not very useful (unless you want to record your game-play), or just want to get rid of one monitor), but it should work.
