I have 2 DYNEX that worked really well on my old Mac Mini but my new 2011 Mini with the Radeon card doesn't seem to like them.

Looking at the TOSHIBA
Model: 32C120U

Anyone had experience with any Toshibas and a 2011 mini?

Trying to avoid taking the mini to the store!

Thanks

You should be fine using it, but I have never heard of a Mac mini "not liking" a TV. What are the symptoms? Have you tried using different cables? How was the mini connected to the DYNEXs?

HDTV issue with MINI

I had one hooked up to the old mini HDMI to an adapter to the micro connector and the other as a VGA.

Ran the HDMI as a 780p and the VGA as 1360x768.

On the 2011 with the Radeon the fonts are choppy and pixelated and picture s and video are not great.

I have tried to adjust as best I could the TV setting but it is nowhere near the quality I had with the old Mini.

Bought new good quality HDMI cables no better luck.

We have a mid 2010 mini hooked up to that Toshiba model TV.

It works fine. A note is that the TV is 720p, not 1080p. The mini displays fine in either resolution, but the 720p looks better as it's the TV's native resolution.

We leave our mini at 1080p simply to improve screen real estate.
