Random Black Screens

I posted on another users thread regarding displays and the issues I have had with the new Mini's. Apparently I am not alone as Apple is aware and I have a case number now. For those of you with the new mini's, the symptoms manifest for me with the following:

Mac mini - base & QC mid Mini
2 Monitors 0 Acer P236H and Samsung 930B both with DVI
Used two different DVI cables and 2 different DVI adapters (took back the base mini and while there I upgraded to mid mini. It does the same.

System will randomly go to a black screen for 1-3 seconds.
Sometimes it will turn the display to snow (like it switches the monitor to a resolution it can't handle)

Happens about 4-6 times per day.

Power settings and the screen saver were turned off.
Nathan at applecare had me do a reset of the system, sleep, shutdown, (CMD-OPTION-P-R) and it still does it.

Hopefully they will get this solved soon!!!

If you are experiencing this, post your symptoms and maybe we can find a common denominator.

Thank you!
