    Question Mac Mini HDMI input?

    I purchased a mac mini for myself around Christmas last year after my previous one broke down. To my surprise I would find an HDMI slot sitting ever so smugly next to the normal display slot. Until now I've completely ignored it's significance, but recently I've wondered if it can be used as an input slot for a gaming console that supports HDMI. If this is possible what software would I require? Specs listed below. Thanks.

    Model Name: Mac mini aluminum
    Model Identifier: Macmini4,1
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.4 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 3 MB
    Memory: 2 GB
    Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz
    Boot ROM Version: MM41.0042.B00
    SMC Version (system): 1.65f2

    Simple answer - no - it is for video out.
