Hi,
I have connected my mac mini to the 50" panasonic TV and the view is a little bit too big so edges are cropped. Display setting are on automatic, recommended setting. What is the problem here? should I adjust something on my TV or on mini?
thanks

You should go into display prefrences on your Mac, there is an option there called overscan or something like that ( I am not at my computer now so can't check that). You can adjust screen size there. Just move the slider until your picture is positioned properly.

If you are using an HDMI cable I would advise you to what the other poster has said. When I did this on my mini though it cause the text to become funky so I had to purchase a MiniDisplayPort-to-VGA cable and use it that way.

Just not enough resolution. Need about 1060p TV display seam to handle about 1280x960 then go ballistic after that. Exchange it for a 23 inch Samsung CPU monitor you will be happier or get a couple of them.
