    Maybe a graphics fix for the Mac Mini:

    More details available here.

    Any devs out there who are part of the beta program? Who will be testing this?

    This maybe the fix for the black screen issues and washed out colours, but I guess only time will tell :confused:

    I suspect not, the Mac mini isn't the only Mac using Intel graphics.
    It seems more likely that there will be a firmware update to fix this.
    I hope I'm wrong, but that's how it seems to me.

    Out of interest how do we receive firmware updates? I am guessing through the normal software update?

    Was running a Hackintosh before so didn't get any.

    yes but sometimes going to the apple support page for firmware will have it.

    here is an older example

    http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1237


    it does mention that not all firmware is found by clicking software update

    I've just installed this on a macmini6,2 2.6 and it seems to be running fine. Build number is 12D32. Still see some sandbox type errors in syslog but less than before the upgrade. For example the spotlight related ones seem to have stopped. Of course I'm not allowed to go into more detail due to the NDA.

    MORE IMPORTANTLY, CAN YOU TELL US IF THE SCREEN BLINKING ISSUE IS FIXED WITH 10.8.3?
    (I.e. were you having screen blinking/going dark before? And are you still having those problems now with the beta?)

    Yes, can you test HDMI and HDMI->DVI setups for blank/snow screen issue? Thx!

    Sorry to disappoint but I've never had any issues at all using my thunderbolt display or even the times I when I've tested another display with hdmi, before or since upgrading.

    I did have some spotlight issues which were duly reported by syslog and these have since stopped being reported and seem good. Previous to upgrading I had tried several remedies which all failed to cure this.
