    Would the new 27" iMac serve as a screen for my Sky HD box, and if so, what connectors would I need?

    (No guesses, please, I need a definitive answer.)

    that's 2 questions :)

    anyway.. i don't really know the answer.. but as the 27" does support video IN.. maybe it would..

    using the hdmi -> displayport perhaps?

    No it won't. Not unless you can get a DVI to Display Port signal converter. Apple's current cable converters can convert Display Port to DVI but not the other way around. They're different signals so need to be converted.

    At least one company is working on a converter though.

    thanks for clearing that up Spanky :)

    would have been good if it did work though... would make a nice tv in the bedroom :)

    on another note - does it make it easier to connect xbox360/ps3 to?
