Not really.


You can go from Mini-Display Port to HDMI easily and as such cheaply, but the reverse is a bit harder as you need to recreate the extra data signal Mini Display Port carries and requires which HDMI does not have This is why adapters in that direction are bulkier and more expensive than the reverse.


It's easy to strip signals, not so much to add them.
