Hi all, I want to by an IMac but I have a lot of Blu-rays that I want to play on it?
Is there any way to play them on it?
Thanks for your help.

Get an external blu-ray player and blu-ray software for the iMac.

Looks like you'll have to go into Bootcamp since there's no blu ray software for Mac yet.

If you already have a Blu-ray video player, and you get the 27" iMac with video-in, then you can get by with a HDMI-DisplayPort adapter.
Kanex iAdapt 51 Mini DisplayPort to HDMI® with 5.1 Channel Digital Audio

It's about $50 from online retailers.

Hi the cable looks a good idea,
Could I play the Bul-ray on to the IMac and convert to an mkv file so I can also play on my WD tv live hub on to my 50" pioneer.
Thanks for your help
