Jerrolds, I wonder if you might be able to suggest/recommend one that I could look at. I've done a search and can only find active dual link adapters to work with Display ports, not HDMI? Would these be boxes with in/out-put ports on either side, or cards that slot into a PCI-E inside a PC?
I never could find one of those for sale on the internet.

Actually you know what..i can try for you once i get home..i have a dell bizlink display port -> dl active adapter, and i should have an hdmi -> display port adapter lying around see if it works with my xbox/ps3
Gimme about a couple hours, still at work atm.
This will be a lot of trouble for what I am afraid is no gain. HDMI -> DisplayPort adapters are not bidirectional - if you want to go from HDMI to DP, you need to use one of these
which aren't even dual link capable., besides being a third the price of the monitor itself.
