Hey guys,

Just wondering if there is a way to use my Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 as a screen for my Xbox One? My wife and I are in a one bedroom apartment for the next year and while we have a small TV in the bedroom, I feel guilty hogging the big one all the time. It's been hard to find information on the subject due to most people wanting to go the other way: Tablet -> Xbox.

From what I have been able to gather, I would need some sort of realtime capture card (have a laptop with USB 3.0) which I would run the Xbox to, and then use Splashtop (maybe something better?) to get the stream on my tablet. Has anyone tried something similar with this tablet? I'm seeing some devices have a second or two of lag while others have almost no lag. Seems like this tablet should be able to handle it.

Seems like it would be nice to cut out the middle man with a wireless HDMI stream right to the tablet but that seems to be a pipe dream...

lag would be horrible like you said.

easiest solution would be to get a cheap, small computer monitor for your xbox.
