Hey guys,

I've been trawling the forums looking for an answer to my question and to no avail I thought I'd post here.

Is it (at all, in ANY WAY possible) to connect an Apple TV (latest) to the current Apple Cinema Display?

I think I know the answer but I thought I'd double check before I jump off a bridge (I mean, Why would Apple do such a thing!?)

Don't let my no-strings bun-jee jump affect your answer in anyway. ;)

ta.

Ignoring the question of why you would want to do that...

Here's a $300 device that will upscale HDMI Input to Mini Display Port Output (http://www.smarthome.com/81418/Atlona-AT-HD620-HDMI-Mini-DisplayPort-to-Mini-DisplayPort-Scaler-and-Switcher/p.aspx)

Sell your monitor and buy a TV. IF you're really using your monitor as a monitor, you can get all the ATV content on a computer anyway. ATV is a great device to drive a TV, but it doesn't do anything that a full computer can't.

Ah! Thank you very much for the link and the suggestion.. I'll probably go with the later.
