    Hi all,

    So I know that :apple: has probably decided this would be too useful a feature to have and blocked it, but does anyone think it's possible to, say, play a Blu-Ray on my Playstation 3 and plug the HDMI cable into my MacBook Pro 17" 2011 with my thunderbolt adapter? I.e., use my laptop as a display.

    I've got Windows 7 in boot camp, would that be of any use in this scenario?

    Btw, I've tried plugging my PS3 into my MacBook Pro as above, but the Thunderbolt shows no connections in system profiler.

    Hmm ok. I'd want 1080p input, both audio and video (fine over HDMI -> Thunderbolt as it works going out just fine).
