    So suppose I want to connect my wii U to a Mac mini through the hdmi port while the Mac mini is connect to a display through either FireWire or mini display. Would I be able to play my games on the display? Or it just isn't compatible? Thanks.
    If there was a thread like this previously, sorry!

    Sounds like it could work ... there might be a little lag, though, in the image you see on the display.

    EDIT : I'm no Mac user either ... but \/ Essometer makes a good point.

    I'm not a Mac person but I can't imagine that the Mac Mini
    has a HDMI in port.
    Those HDMI port are out only.

    For that you would need a USB capture card with component or HDMI in, like the Hauppauge HDPVR (first or the second one, both will work but I believe only 2 has HDMI)

    OK. seems like that won't work. If you could help once more, what if I use a lighting display. I found a mini displayport female to mini displayport female adapter and a mini displayport to hdmi online. before buying, I would like to know if that would work.

    I don't have the money to buy a capture card. I am using some points I have to buy stuff (around $10).:lol:
