    With a lot of exhausting research on many sites and support communities......oh and four visits to the Apple Store and speaking to Apple Support. You cannot connect your ATT Uverse cable box to your 2011 iMac to watch TV........that's such a bummer. Then monitor is perfect for it. Still if anyone knows if something is coming out to rectify this, I'm all ears!!!!

  • Actually just finished a bunch of research on this very topic. You will need to purchase a DVI to Mini DP converter box such as: ATLONA AT-DP400 Dual Link DVI to Mini DisplayPort Converter or Kanex XD HDMI to Mini DisplayPort Converter for 27 inch iMac or the Belkin AV360 MINI DISP PT CONVRT ( which is the most expensive but has the best reviews. The other adaptors are simply for Mini DP to HDMI (Output uni directional ONLY).

    I hope this helps.
