Ok,

So I hooked up the new mini how come everytime it starts up it has all the text flying across the screen and not the Apple Logo? Is this correct or normal on a mini or should i reformat it?

That's the start-up movie. You only see it once. Then you configure your accounts.

Huh? Flying text? You mean like a DOS screen or something. Sounds like its booting in safe mode. Is this a new Mini or used? I guess a reinstall wouldn't hurt.

Ok finished reinstalling and its still starting up in safe mode does this have anything to do with the fact that it's hooked up to my TV?

Does it boot into OS X properly?

Yes it does and it seems to run fine also.

As long as it runs OS X well, I guess it shouldn't be too much of a problem. If you're still worried, give Apple a ring.

I kno Onyx has the option to change the settings to start up with DOS style text or the normal apple loading screen. If you download onyx and have a look at the options it may return it to normal.
Only a suggestion. It may not work but it definately won't hurt to try :)
