Assuming that this is the model with only a Moni Displayport input.

Monoprice's DisplayPort Adapters section (http://www.monoprice.com/products/subdepartment.asp?c_id=104&cp_id=10428) doesn't list any products that allow a HDMI input to be sent to a Mini Displayport output. Monoprice and the like are pretty quick to market with stuff like this, so that suggests there's no cheap HDMI -> DP HW out there. There is cheap DP -> HDMI HW though, so this must be a 'simple one way, complex the other way' situation.

There's this from Kanex (http://kanexlive.com/products/kanexXD.html), for USD$150 (!) that should do the trick though. For, might I reiterate, USD$150. Ouch.

There's also this from Belkin (http://store.apple.com/us/product/H0360LL/A) for the same price from the Apple store, but note that it scales the output, which seem to be an inferior option.
