    I'm pretty sure this is not possible... but I thought I'd check to see if I've missed some sort of tool/hack that might enable this functionality. I have an android mini computer that plugs in via HDMI and a few other devices I was looking to tinker with - having a portable screen, a'la Surface, would be very useful!

    Any help appreciated. Even if it's just to tell me NOPE, not possible!

    There is no input, only output.

    Probably not *exactly* what you're looking for but could be helpful to other folks that come across your posting. Great question!
