Hi, I would like to know the cheapest possible way to connect a BRD player to a 27' iMac. I have the option of HDMI or Component. I am aware that you cannot just use various adapters to attach HDMI to Mini Display. That would have been the cheapest option. I have done some research and there are some HDMI to MD converters, but they can be quite pricey at 100-300 dollars. I was wondering if there is any cheaper way to do this. Thanks for any suggestions.

Have not researched it in the last two months. I still have only seen one adapter besides the Kanex, but both still at approx $150.

For all those looking for such an adapter, I'd suggest writing/emailing monoprice and make a request. They have been known to put the time into new adapters/cabling with enough requests from Mac users.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

Ok, as I had some time, I had a look around.
Going through another thread here it appears that this one works with sound, or will with your new Imac:

That one is for going out from the Mac to a monitor/TV. It will not go in the reverse direction to carry signal from a B-R, Xbox360, etc. to the iMac.

With the introduction of all these various video cables and the technologies behind them, you'll find that a great number of video adapters today are a one way street.
