Will an XBOX360 with a VGA cable work with this Mini DisplayPort to VGA adapter on a 27" iMac?

The XBOX VGA cable has separate audio, so that's not an issue, but will the video work using this method?

    I have to recant my previous answer. Although Apple does state that you can connect an external source to the 27" iMac, you CANNOT connect a converted video signal to the mini port and expect it to drive the appropriate signals. I tried this with the MiniDisplay-VGA converter and a laptop and it DID NOT WORK. Reading further, I discovered there are converters that can do this, but none for VGA that I could find.

  • You can NOT send video from any device into the iMac through the Mini DisplayPort. The Mini DisplayPort is for sending video OUT ONLY. There is no way to get video from an Xbox 360 or any other device to show on the iMac's screen.
