Hello,

 

I bought 2 used (well, almost not) 27" Apple Cinema Display. To my surprise, both doen't have Thunderbolt on it. So, I hooked one to the Thunderbolt port of my Macmini 5,5. I looked everywhere to see if there is HDMI to MiniDisplay Port (female) so I can connect the second monitor to the Mac Mini. I found this product :

 

Kanex XD (http://www.kanexlive.com/xd)

 

They are saying that we can use it to hook any HDMI source to a Apple Cinema Display screen but at 720p.

 

Will this setup works for dual screen without Thunderbolt? Will Mac OS X recognize the second display?

 

Thanks!
Nicolas.
