Then you need to get a Thunderbolt out device...Blackmagic UltraStudio Mini Monitor is $145...connect that to a decent HDTV...and you should be good to go.

Then no, alas. BlackMagic Decklink has USB portion, but none of them are for the Mac, PC only. And FireWire options are no longer made.

Buy a computer with Thunderbolt, then get something like the AJA T-TAP or Decklink Extreme Mini Monitor...and a good HDTV.
