    I hope to find help with the following questions.

    I use on my iMac 21.5 inch a eye tv 250 plus do I need to connect it to this to let the PS3 work and have some experience of it works or does it suck.

    Is it possible to connect the PS3 directly to connect to the iMac, when yes how


    thank you for any help.

    PS3 -> eyetv -> iMac should work. However, people report that there's a lag when gaming. There are other threads on the forum about it.

    You can't use the iMac video port as it is input only on the 21" iMac.

    There is noticeable lag plus it's limited to 480p

    You're better off getting a monitor with HDMI or a HDTV
