Watching TV / playing game consoles on an Apple Cinema, possible?
Iím new to the boards obviously. I was in the mall the other day and absolutely fell in love with the 30Ē apple cinema display. I love the resolution, the style, the size is perfect ectÖ
The only question I have about it is would I be able to use it as a tv as well? Could I play game consoles such as an PlayStation 2 or Xbox at the same quality I would on a normal HDTV? Could I connect some sort of HDTV tuner to it (Iíve seen some HDTV tuners with DVI out?) and use it to watch my cable company's HDTV packages?
I really would like to get this monitor if it would replace my current TV setup as well as my computer monitors. Any information would be really helpful.

Well, I don't live in the US, but I'll go out on a limb here.
From what I can see on the Apple site, it only has DVI and firewire inputs. So if you could find something with the appropriate DVI output, you could technically connect it. However, I'm not sure those resolutions are true HD (or at least the resolutions that HD TV kit outputs, but I'm not 100% on that one). As for playing games, I'll say no, unless again the console has a DVI output. I'm sure you could get all sorts of fancy converters, but you'd be better just buying a proper LCD TV.
The Cinema display is meant for connecting a computer to, not for watching TV I guess
