Connecting xbox to imac via HDMI.
« on: December 1, 2018, 06:05:47 pm »
As the title states, looking to connect my xbox one to my late 2012 iMac.

Iíve got a Thunderbolt to HDMI cable but that only works one way, and not the way I need it to.

Any suggestions?
Thereís no HDMI port on the mac, only 2 thunderbolt and 4 USB slots.

To much hassle partitioning the drive then installing windows then having to boot to windows everytime I want to play the xbox.

Was more wondering if thereís a Thunderbolt to HDMI splitter or adapter box I could get? Iíve googled and canít seem to find anything but google doesnít always have the answers.
