    Here's my idea on a setup when I move into my garage. :)

    Xbox 360 connected to iMac 27" with a Kanex XD HDMI to Mini DisplayPort adaptor.

    A FreeView box also connected via HDMI though the Kanex XD adaptor using a HDMI switch.

    Or instead of the FreeView box I might get an EyeTV TV Tuner so I can use the new app to watch live tv on my iPhone.

    Here's my other idea...

    Mac Mini connected to my 42" Samsung HD moniter via HDMI

    Xbox 360 also connected to the moniter with HDMI

    A FreeView box also connected via HDMI to the moniter with a HDMI switch to change between the three.

    I suppose it depends on screen size at the end of the day...

    Any comments, suggestions or alternatives anyone?

    Well, Mini is a lot cheaper and IMO better unless you need speed because X360 doesn't look that beautiful on iMac's screen because it's not its native res and so does your FreeView box.
