I had the exact same problem of connecting a laptop to an Xbox for video viewing and I did about 2 weeks research and found what I was looking for. mabye this will help, The KWorld USB DVD Maker USB 2.0 comes in a kit but the adapter is what you really want. This worked perfectly the way I wanted plus it has audio input.

what softwaredo you use to view the xbox input signal?

I know I am getting a good signal as I can see it in Windows Movie Maker and the Cyberlink PowerProducer gold software, but how do I get a nice full screen (or at least larger) image?

I personally did not install Cyberlink PowerProducer gold software, but only the DVD maker USB 2.0 sDriver and Application software, the pink disc. After installation open the program named PVR Plus and click on the Mini TV icon in the Upper-right hand corner. It will open a black screen and if your Xbox is on and connected you should see live video. To enlarge the picture to full screen right click in the window scroll down three.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
