Hi everyone. I'm planning on converting my Mac Mini into a HTPC and buy an iMac as my main computer. I tried connecting my Mac Mini to my 2 year old Toshiba 19in LCD TV. It simply would not work, colors were washed out, the taskbar was cut off, etc. I tried everything I could, but with no success. So I am in the market for a 22-26in HDTV around $300-$500. I already have all the cables I need, a DVI to HDMI cable, and a 3.5mm headphone jack to RCA cable. Do you recommend any HDTV? What HDTV do you have connected to your Mac Mini? Is the taskbar cutoff?

Had a sony 34xbr. Last of the tube HDTVs. Sucker weighs 200lbs. Great color, excellent blacks.

Filled the screen perfectly, but was sold and an apple tv was put in its place.
