    Hello

    I'm trying to find a monitor that will respond to and work with the Mac keyboard brightness controls. I know the Cinema/Thunderbolt Display ofc will work, but it doesn't have HDMI or more than one input. (My goal is to hook up my Macbook Pro and Xbox)

    Do you guys have any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    None will AFAIK. Also, where did you get that the ACD does? I've never heard of that before.

    I found this: http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-13727_...-missing-displays-brightness-control-in-os-x/

    It's an article about fixing it when it doesn't work correctly. I've also seen a few video reviews / unboxing of both the Cinema Display and Thunderbolt Display where the reviewer adjust brightness while connected to a Mac Mini for example using the Apple keyboard.

    I can confirm this. I have the aluminum 20" model. When connected via mini-DP to DVI and also by USB the brightness controls work. You can also disable the monitor's brightness buttons and set it so that the monitor's power button will put the computer to sleep.
