    Maybe an adapter that makes HDMI work through thunderbolt? :S

    Pretty sure you could do it through the Hauppauge PVR, but only 720p and prob $250 for the kit.

    Hopefully someone comes out with a video deck, with HDMI in and out, (mini) Displayport in/out.

    They are not Thunderbolt adapters.

    Guess this means that when I replace my current iMac with the new one, I won't be able to use TDM with my 2008 MacBook Pro with the new iMac (yet.) /sad

    You could use a Slingbox, as long as you're happy with a display around a second out of sync. Would be fine for viewing a BluRay, but I can imagine gaming would be frustrating!

    Black Magic Design is making a thunderbolt video deck with HDMI input, unfortunately it's a product for video professionals and is going to cost $995
    It also has component/composite and dual HDSDI in/dual out for 3D production, so it's not just an expensive HDMI adapter or anything, plus it is accessed in the OS through video programs, not input as a video signal for target display mode.

    Matrox announced at NAB that they will be making their matrox mini HDMI capture box(and other products) for thunderbolt Macs, I believe the current non -TB versions go for $350-400.

    Does this still work. I thought Apple said the Thunderbolt port will accept mini DisplayPort connectors.

    This may work: Belkin AV360 HDMI-to-Mini DisplayPort Converter
    You might want to ask someone at Apple if this works.

    Here is the link. Again, if it does work it will only do 720P.

    Here is something else that might work.
    Kanex XD - HDMI to Apple iMac 27-inch and Cinema Display 27-inch

    Here is that link:
