    Firstly I'm running Yosemite 10.10.2 on my Mini. I have my monitor connected through HDMI and just use the internal speaker in the Mini.

    Everything works absolutely fine until I use another audio device, for example I airplay a movie to my Apple TV or plug external speakers in.

    After doing one of the above if I turn the monitor off say while the film is being airplayed to the Apple TV, when I try and turn it back on the monitor will not find a signal.

    I can however use Screens for iOS to connect to the mini and restart it which then gives the HDMI signal again.

    So as it stands I cannot use external speakers and cannot Airplay from the Mini as this will cause loss of signal from the HDMI the next time I turn the monitor back on. I have also tried the Display Port and get the same result.

    The workarounds I am currently using:

    • Using internal Mac Mini Speaker (not fun)
    • Airplaying video files using the Beamer Mac App, which works great but does not help if I want to airplay a streaming video from the web.


    I thought this issue was meant to be fixed in a previous Yosemite update?

    Glad it's not just me, tempted to try the Public Preview to see if it's fix the issue.
