I like to take my 360 with me when I travel. I'm going to Dallas in the morning and I don't feel like packing my small HD tv for the flight. In Dallas, is there an easy way to get an HD tv without buying a new one? Either renting it - or - returning a purchase to a major store?

I bought VGA cables in an attempt to connect my 360 to my laptop- didn't work.

Ideas, suggestions?

Why dont you get one of those mini LCD screens - I know Joytech make one that secures itself to the top of your 360. You could keep the packaging all nice and return it as an unwanted gift? ;)

The odds are pretty good that you can get it on the plane. The thing I don't want to do- is put an LCD tv in my luggage. Talk about asking for it.

Where can I get a joytech screen? Best Buy maybe?

Yeah see if i cant carry the 360 with me on the plane then i have to mail it and thats gonna suck balls. And l Certianly wouldnt wanna do that with a Tv either. But Best Buy should have it. lf you live in Nebraska or Kansas you could get one from Nebraska Funiture Mart, or Try Mega Mart if u have one

This is the one I was refering to - sorry but I dont know if it is any good, but I did use the PS2 one and that was OK.

I also found this one for you manufactured by Intec:

I had a look around online and couldn't really find anywhere "high-street" wise I could point out to you that sold either of these. Sorry :(

You'll be pretty close to me, I'm in Plano :).

Sorry, but I don't know of any TV rental places around here...

Last time I went to Dallas I didn't take my 360. I bought Prey and Chromehounds at a local EB. Couldn't wait to get home to play it. That was six months and 20,000 gamerscore points ago. :)

I want to at least get a little farther in LOTR II and maybe finish Just Cause. I'll take my 360 and see how it goes. I doubt the Hilton will have HDtvs in the rooms.

Smokez, you could always buy your 360 a ticket and make it fly incognito LOL :p
