    Is this possible:

    Using the new mac mini having Win 7 running through the HDMI port connected to the lounge TV whilst at the same time using Parallels running OSX Lion connected via a Thunderbolt Display.

    The other issue i can see with this setup is when the one who must be obeyed changes a channel in Win 7 this will mess with the cursor in OSX Lion.

    Anyway just wondering

    The big fly in the ointment is that you can run Windows in Parallels under OS X, but not OS X in Parallels under Windows.

    You might be able to handle the focus thing by having separate mouse and KB connected via USB and connected to the VM. (i.e. don't share a mouse and KB).
