Can I use Apple TV with a Thunderbolt display instead of a TV ?

I would like to use my Thunderbolt monitor with Apple TV instead of an HDTV. Is this possible and what do I have to do to set it up.
Many thanks.

    As crazy as it sounds, no you cannot. I have been looking for a way to use the Thunderbolt display with *anything* other than a Mac and it doesn't seem like it is possible. There is a Thunderbolt-capable motherboard on the market (non-Mac) but nothing else I can find that will drive the Thunderbolt display.

    It seems like a logical thing to allow AppleTV to support the Thunderbolt display, but no dice.
