Hi everybody,

I bought a MacMini 5,2 last year together with a gorgeous Apple Thunderbolt Display.

Together they're working just great and have given me so much satisfaction you would not believe but as long as they work together.

I haven't been able to use that ultrafullHD beauty with nothing else.

I have no other HD screen around but the 27 inches, problems (in my mind) start when friends bring their XBOX 360s/PS3s over and I do not want to turn on my granma's CRT 37" 4:3 TV when I have that jewel...

Kanex hasn't done anything new, not for thunderbolt at least, and no one else has idea on how to bypass this problem. I also hate the fact that the MacMini's HDMI it's an only output port (it would be so cool otherwise) and I have to accept it.

So is there another solution, besides adding external adapters (e.g Elgato and Co.) ???

Please help me or kill me, if I don't come out of this I'll get crazy...I cannot accept the fact that Thunderbolt is developing so freakin slowly (or not at all)...

Cheers
Gabriele

Am not aware of any type of video "to" thunderbolt converters on the market.

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.
