    I was just wondering if this is possible through my 2005 edition of Media
    Center. If this could work...that would be really awesome. I haven't had any
    luck yet finding out if I can or not so if anybody has any information about
    it, I would appreciate it.

    Not sure, why, but you would want to do that, but moving on.......

    Is that a valid model number for a Sony notebook with Media Center
    URL on the support site of the notebook?
    Does the notebook have VIDEO IN? or a on board tv tuner?

    You won't be able to view it within the MCE application. MCE buffers your
    video input so that it can do what is refered to as 'trick play' (i.e.
    pausing, rewinding, fast forwarding of the tv stream). As a result, what
    you see on screen is not shown at the same time as when it was sent in from
    your xbox (it'll be delayed by about 2 seconds).

    If the Sony Vaio comes with another application that can display video in,
    then it might be possible.
