    Hi, I want to connect my PS3/X360 to my iMac 27 inch. There is one problem, standard adapter from HDMI -> miniDisplay or adapters in connection: HDMI -> DVI -> miniDisplay does not deal with this.

    So I've read about Dr. Bott adapters, but there is not any in stock in Europe (there is written 'soon'). So maybe something that is alternate for this or maybe I am in mistake and they're selling this in Europe? Do you have any tips...?

    No. That's for using a computer sporting a Mini DisplayPort with a HDMI display:

    You want a HDMI to Mini DisplayPort adapter, not Mini DisplayPort to HDMI. By my understanding, the DVI/HDMI -> MDP adapter is so expensive because it has to add to the signal, since MDP contains more than just the DVI signal. By contrast, the MDP -> DVI adapter is relatively cheap because the MDP contain all of the connectors that DVI does.

    I would LOVE it if I could get an VNC client working on my XBOX 369...
