    I just hooked up a Mac Mini to my 1080p HDTV using an HDMI cable. I can change the resolution, 720p seems to be the best to me, 1080p is just too small from my couch. Anyway, the top menu bar is off the screen, and I think maybe a little at the sides and bottom as well. What do I need to adjust to fix this? And where is it at? Thanks

    I have the late-2009 Mac mini, and I would have to turn off Overscan in Display under System Preferences. I believe that the mid-2010 Mac mini has a more adjustable slider to make the picture fit. But I have no idea where that would be (also under Display in System Preferences?)

    Boy, that was simple. I saw the slider that said Underscan, but I didn't even try it:confused:. Thanks
