    Is there a list of CRT monitors that are known to work ok with the mac mini, and coversely a list of those known to have display issues? I have a 15" Proview EM-155 CRT monitor.

    I'm still hoping the latest revision C will have resolved the display problems the mini seems to have.

    I've never heard of Mac Mini display problems. Any VGA monitor 1024x768 or more or any DVI monitor should work just fine...your CRT should work fine.

    I've used many DVI to VGA adapters on my Mac Mini's. I've never any issues with them at all.

    There is an issue of sorts: the Mini's output voltage on the VGA port is lower than a lot of graphics cards, and not all monitors adjust properly for this so some appear very dim. I was under the impression that it wasn't all that much of an issue on most relatively new CRTs, though, but then I've never tried one myself.
