    Can I connect my xbox360 to my iMac with a mini-display/hdmi cable, like this one http://tinyurl.com/75z3ggp. The iMac is 21 inch and was purchased last December. Thanks in advance.

    No, from what people have posted here in the past. The iMac does not have an inbuilt scaler. So you need a proper adapter box that cost $150 or so.

    My screen is set to 1920x1080. Don't hdmi cables display in 1080? Why would a scaler be necessary?
