    Any text or brand on the adapter? Do you still have the original package?

    Looks like that is a mDP to HDMI adapter, meaning that you can use that to connect you iMac to an external monitor with HDMI. What you need is an HDMI to mDP adapter which lets you to connect a device equipped with HDMI to the iMac. You need something like this

    Are you trying to play your PS3 on your iMac screen? Then you'll need a converter box I believe, as the adapter you have is probably M-DP->HDMI, rather than the other way around. Your local Apple Store should have the converter box.
