Is this possible? There must be some obscure device that can be bought, or some clever way for it to work. It's an Apple 24" Cinema Display, which doesn't have that many ports (just three USB and one AV port).

I just want to use this great monitor for something other than computing. I'm thinking it would be great to play games on (PS3, XBOX 360, PS2) or connect to a Blu-Ray Player.

Would it do any good to buy a HDMI to Mini-DV cable, connecting the HDMI cable into the PS3 and the Mini-DV cable into the processor?

I don't know. Give me a hand.

Couldn't find an Mini-display-port female to HDMI-male cable. Thought I found an adapter, but didn't.

Good luck.

And exactly how does a mdp to dp adapter help him get to HDMI?

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.
