    word says that the late 2013 27" only accepts video in from another Thunderbolt port, not mini display.

    As described you need a Thunderbolt device to use TDM,in other words you can only connect another Thunderbolt equipped Mac. Please read Apple's http://support.apple.com/kb/ht3924

    I drilled around the internet...

    seems like as long as there is no HDMI to Thunderbolt, the is no way in the world to achieve what i wanted to..

    This is the case since the 2011 iMac with Thunderbolt.
