Well, there are three separate functions being talked about here. I don't think you can do all of them with a single port.I'd like to see a HDMI port, if it could be used for recording, and in reverse so I could watch stuff I've bought on iTunes on my TV
I have a HDMI set-top box for my TV that offers all 3 functions from 1 port, just not all at the same time.Well, there are three separate functions being talked about here. I don't think you can do all of them with a single port.
1) HDMI input which would go directly to the display. This would let you use the iMac like a TV. Currently this only works using a Thunderbolt cable and only with other Thunderbolt equipped computers.
2) HDMI video capture port which would let you record the HDMI input from within OSX. This can be done currently but requires an external video capture box.
3) HDMI output, which would let you hook the iMac up to a TV. This you can already do with a Mini-Displayport to HDMI cable.
