Canopus ADVC-100

I have a Canopus ADVC-100 converter - I'd like to plug my Xbox into it and use it to display the video on my monitor - I have both Windows and Mac OS X, and an Apple 23 inch Cinema Display - is there an application that I can use to display the video at full screen using my ADVC converter?  It has RCA inputs so I can feed the Xbox in that way.  

Does anyone know if this is possible?

Have you tried this yet? It's a bit stodgy taking X-box's analogue output and re-converting it to digital. I've noticed that both your ADVC and Apple Cinema Display have firewire ports. Do you get full screen simply using a firewire cable?

That's my question - Is there an application out there that will allow me to do this?

What I meant was do you have a firewire cable to connect from your ADVC to your Cinema Display?

Anyway this company is about to release a product:

They posted this last year:
<<Currently there there is no way to connect your Xbox 360 to your
30 inch Cinema Display. We are currently working on a product that will allow you to do such conversion. Most likely January 2006.>

...and here's the update:

<It's in production. We will have it ready by the end of this month> :

Nice - thanks for the info.  

My Canopus ADVC does have a firewire connection, but what I've done in the past is hooked up a video camera or something similar and just imported the video with Final Cut Pro - however I'd like to find a program that just simply takes the signal and displays it on the screen.
