    Nope an iMac can not be used as a monitor.

    Well you can use an EyeTV TV input thing can show TV on a Mac, so it kinda can. But not a general purpose monitor.

    A Mac mini with a monitor would work.

    Using something like Apple Remote Access, yes.

    But connecting the iMac directly as an external monitor? Unfortunately, no.
