Hi,

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.

Simple answer - no - it is for video out.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
