I have beens searching the forums, but all I am getting is that you can stream your music and videos onto the xbox 360.
But can I actually hook my xbox 360 up to a iMac and play it on the iMac. The point is I Just want to have an iMac in my room and no TV.

I am hoping that the new imacs will have such inputs to hook up a 360 or PS3. Here's hoping that Apple listened to the demands:apple:

They may add a HDMI input (crosses fingers). This would accomodate a PS3 or Elite 360, but not a regular 360.

Component to HDMI isn't simple or cheap though is it? There is a reason MS haven't released a HDMI cable for the regular 360 - it can't output a digital video signal, only analogue. HDMI is digital only. So the signal would have to go through a processing box of some sort.

I don't really think that's a high-demand feature. Most home users want their entertainment on the bigger TV in their living room - something they can see from the couch. You're an exception to that.
