So, has anyone ever hooked up their Wii to their MacBook, basically using the MacBook as the display for the Wii? Or know if it can be done? We are going on vacation next week and the wife just texted me this question. As usual, I have no clue.

The MacBook is about 4 years old and is running Snow Leopard. Any help is appreciated!

Long story short, it looks like you need an interface between the audio and video output of the Wii and the input (usb?) on the Mac.

EDIT:
Maybe something like this:

Thanks - I had seen that (EyeTV) on my Google search but not watched it yet. I figured I'd have to invest in some kind of hardware and/or software but wasn't sure what kind.
