    I have done a search related to my issue and have found a few threads about a flickering or black screen, however they don't seem to pertain to my issue so I hope I am posting this question correctly.
    I have a mac mini attached to my Panasonic HDTV to use as an HTPC. I use a Harmony One remote to start my mac mini activity and haven't had any major issues with the setup thus far. However, there is one nagging issue that I was wondering if there was a remedy. When I first start up my mac mini activity using the harmony one remote, I have noticed that my TV screen will show several light blue screens before my mac mini desktop shows up on the TV; and even then the TV will flicker once more before finally everything calms down and works as it should. Does anyone else have a similar issue when starting up the mac mini? Is this normal? Is there a remedy?
    BTW, I leave my mac mini on all of the time too so when I start the activity I won't get the typical blank screen with the apple logo and so forth.

    Thanks for your help.

    Any suggestions? I assume since there have not been any responses that it could be one of two things; it is common and I shouldn't worry about it or no one else is experiencing this and something is wrong. :)
