    i dont see why you cant hook em up
    what are you trying to achieve by hooking them up tho?...
    do you want to just use the screen of the laptop? or do you want to be able to control from the laptop aswell?

    well the cheapest and easiest way imo is to buy a cheap usb TV card/capture device with SCART inputs
    (about £10)
    then do it that way
    otherwise that ebay product
    or you could try this http://www.everythingusb.com/hardware/index/ATI_TV_Wonder_USB_2.0.htm

    looks pretty cool .. plus coz its usb2.0 theres barely any lag between console and screen :D

    hope this help
