    I have a 24" iMac, and a pretty small 19" TV and I have my Sky Digibox and Xbox 360 hooked up to it.

    I as wondering if it was possible (I'm guessing it isn't) to hook up my Sky Digibox and Xbox 360 somehow to my iMac, so I can use the 24" display as the input.

    I don't think it is possible - but I don't know.

    You can use something link an Elgato EyeTV which is a USB tuner with a composite video input. The quality won't be any better than your TV though.

    I had the same thought. I found a product called iTV or something similar that allowed you to receive HD tv signals to you iMac. You could also hook up you cable coax or even standard componat cabels to it. That would allow for 360 gaming as long as you can live with standard def. It also had some good software that came with it so you could essentially use your iMac as a TiVo

    It was about $90. I'm goig to get one myself.

    What about the new 24" Apple Cinema Display? Could that be hooked up to a Sky box? The wife wants a new TV, kill two birds with one stone :D
