So there is no way to connect a game console to my notebook?

It does not have s-video in. It is an inspiron 9300. I know the WinTv tuner can do it, but it runs the games slow. What are my options, if any. My friend said that xbox360 has a a plug that can do it, is that true?

Plz don't ask this question in cnet. Go to or other computer forums that have ppl who answer to these mod questions. If there's no s-video in, then it's basically impossible unless you get an external tv tuner, which as you say is slow. XBOX360 plug???? How many plugs do your computer have? I doubt it's a connector that is currently in your notebook.

The solution was an USB 2.0 TV/capture.

Your solution was likely USB 1.1 and such would be terrible.
