Is there any way to get the video signal output from a Displayport (mDP) or Thunderbolt (1 / 2) socket into a Firewire (FW800, IEEE 1394) input? What cables, adapters and drivers or other software would I need?
I do have an mDP 1.2 to hdmi/dvi/vga adapter if that helps. So the question may be reduced to: How do I get a Firewire input to accept and display a monitor video signal instead of either a DV camera signal or a Firewire Target Display Mode signal?
- Connect firewire MacMini to thunderbolt MacBook Pro (other way around – solution: 1-way TB-FW adapter)
- Is it possible to set up an old iMac as an external monitor without Target Display Mode? (basically the same question without enough details)
- How to use an old iMac as an external display for a MacBook via wifi? (similar question but focussing on software solutions)
