    Hi all.

    The resoultion on my 21.5 mid 2010 iMac is amazing. Would love to use it with a PS3. Question is How?

    Has anyone tried hooking up a PS3 to iMac for video and sound ?


    Thanks

    Mike

    You might not like it so much with a ps3 connected. Even though ps3 advertises their games as 720p and 1080p, they're almost always upscaled from a lower resolution. For instance, most 720p games on a ps3 are really 540p.

    This topic has spawned many threads on here and the general consensus is that is not worth it and/or not possible because any solution would be quite expensive and would lag an unacceptable amount for playing games.

    I never thought of Lag. Excellent point. Thank You all.

    I think I may have to go another route.
