    The adapter I linked to works with MDP or TB.

    Can it work the other way around too? Can I connect my cable box to the new 27 iMac through some adapter and make it just like a tv with HD and analog?

    They used to have ones that did that for just DP, but they need to be updated to TB. I'm sure they exist now, not sure how much they cost though. They'd be more expensive for sure.

    Should. Don't see why not, just uses Thunderbolt. (works with the 2011 one too)

    Yes, they can with an adapter, just like any other macs with thunderbolt. What is the big mystery?

    No, recently the past handful of months I've been around this forum trying to learn all I can. I did sign up a wile ago though because I've owned just about all previous iPhone/iPad generations..finally making the switch to Mac.
