Cable box coax to USB for iMac Tags: Configuration USB Adapter iMac Cable Mac OS X Product Last response: August 28, 2012 12:04 AM in Mac Os X Share VictorVictor5 August 21, 2012 1:58:44 PM Greetings Tom's, I have a friend who would like to somehow connect from his cable box (digital coax) to his iMac monitor. I guess this would be a coax to USB adapter involved. Is anyone out there aware of a coax to USB adapter for an iMac, early 2006 model? Yes it does have an Intel chipset. Thanks!

Plenty provide USB hubs, but they've got something else to connect to their video source. If I'm not mistaken, it's going to be DisplayPort on your Mac. As far as how to do it, you need something called a TV Tuner. They're not cheap.
