Mini displayport to HDMI question

I want to use the mini displayport to HDMI adapter(1170) to connect a hdmi source to a thunderbolt enabled display. So I really want to use it the other way around. Is this possible?. I want to connect my signalgenerator to an LG 4K display for calibration.

I’m asking this because I believe this adapter is meant to connect a thunderbolt source to a HDMI display. And send data from hdmi to thunderbolt.

Hi Dimitri, the cac-1170 is a DP to HDMI converter and not bi directional. So this will not work the other way around. Sorry

Hi Dimitri,

No at this point no, i thought it would not be all that difficult to make a HDMI2.0 to DP1.2 converter, but aparently i am wrong :-S
Our Product Management is still working on coming up with a solution for this, but it is still to early to come up with a release date or something like that.
