I don't know if you read my earlier post, or headed over to the Apple forums? But the new Mac Mini has a small problem. Any screen connected by the HDMI output suffers a variety of problems. A screen connected by TB/MDP is fine, it would appear to be an HDMI out problem.

My MM exhibited, snow like interference and the screen blacking out for anything from less than a second to a couple of seconds. I contacted Apple and they wished to 'capture' my MM so I sent it back to them and I am currently waiting for a new replacement one to arrive.

Take a look:

Some post have been pulled by Apple apparently, according to some.

There are supposed to be MM's which don't have the problem, but they must be like 'hens teeth!'

Thanks for this info. I'm on the market for a new mini to supplement my Macbook Pro. I'm going to be monitoring this until its addressed somehow. Though I'm sure Apple will quietly fix this problem.
