    It is an expensive option at £79.99 but Roxio have a product called Game Capture.

    Guessing you were hoping for some mac software?

    Your iMac is being used as a monitor, and like a monitor it isn't processing the video, just displaying it. I'm unaware of anything that can capture video coming IN to the iMac via the DisplayPort. See:

    Kanex says it's not possible as well, although they seem to hint that it's just a legal issue:

    You'll have to find some other hardware solution.
