Hi, this looks like an awesome product! Will I be able to use this with a PC Desktop with a graphic card that has HDMI output? I have a late 2010 27" iMac, and I was wondering if I can use my iMac as a monitor for my PC with this. Thanks so much :D
Yes as long as you send your PC resolution HDMI output to 1280x720 it will work just fine.

If I link directly the kanex XD to an LED cinema display 27" how do I adjust the volume output of the display?
why are women unfaithful why wife cheated link

You'll have to manually adjust the audio on the device your inputing (probably through the system's settings) since the Cinema Display doesn't have built-in volume control.

Can I use thsi product with an IMAC that is running Windows via bootcamp? Was wondering how to invoke switch to device - Cmd + F2 is not a valid command sequence in Windows....
No, the Kanex XD will not work on the Windows Bootcamp since CMD+ F2 will not be valid Key.Thank You.

So I bought the Kanex XD to use with my new model 27 inch iMac and it doesn't work with it apparently, despite the fact that it is clearly shown on your web page functioning with your product. What am I supposed to do? Any helps appreciated, thanks.
The XD uses a Mini DisplayPort connection as it's output. This product does not work with the new Thunderbolt equipped iMacs and displays as indicated on the product information page. Thunderbolt products require certification from Intel. Please check out our Thunderbolt information page for new product announcements relating to Thunderbolt certified products: http://www.kanexlive.com/article/thunderbolt-adapters

Hello I was looking at getting this for my mid 2010 imac and was wondering if it will work with the wii u and PS4 ?
Yes. The Kanex XD will work with Wii U and PS4 with your 2010 iMac.

is there any(and I mean 0.000001)chance for this product to support the new 2012 iMac? , I don't care when, just promise me that you will do some thing about it, please say "yes".And how can I keep up to date about your products and updates ?
Sorry, not compatible - Thanks.

Will this work with a PS4?
Yes, but you will need to adjust the video resolution to HD720p and will only work with older display port based imacs and apple cinema displays. check our specs before you buy.

Does this not work with a mid 2011 27" iMac then?

Kanex does exactly what it advertises. It lets you play your playstation on your 27" Imac. No hiccups no installations no hassel it works as soon as you have plugged everything together (provided you have reduced the out of your playstation to 720p). And this is the the ONLY bad thing about it. I it won;t let you play your playstation at 1080p on your imac. Even though you imac is capable at displaying images a at far greater quality than 1080x1920 (it can do 1440x2560). So effectivelyyou are stuck at 720p, and thats where it loses a star. Other than that it is a great product!

Thank you for the feedback opportunity. My son has been trying to make it work without success. After reading your user guide and some forum posts I am now sure that the power supply to the XD is the problem. Having tried connecting everything in the correct order and ensuring the source resolution is at 720p. The best we managed was a brief black screen but then only when jiggling the power cord. The problem seems to be at the transformer end connecting to the wall. First brief flickers now nothing. I'm not sure if the lights on the XD ever illuminated during these flickers but I have never seen them on they do not come on now. I have tested the wall plug with other devices and it works fine. We live in Australia (240v) Hope you can help regards Greg

I really like this product but if the Imac can only receive a 720p signal then why wouldn't you make that the default output for the kanex XD. after purchasing this product i had to take my ps3 over to a friends house and use their tv to change the picture settings on my ps3 from 1080p. another issue is always having to get up and unplugg cables whenever i want to switch from ps3 to my imac , it would be great if it had a on/off remote
