    I have the most recent model Mini connected to a 47" TV outputting at 1080p. I'm running at native resolution for the TV.

    I have a BT mouse connected that seems to be laggy and jumpy (it varies). I've messed with the mouse settings and such, used a mouse pad, switched mice, changed batteries, etc. and still experience similar behavior. I wondered if it was the resolution but I'm not sure it's really being forced in any to a point where the mouse should react that way.

    Any thoughts?

    The mice I have tried is a Razer Pro|Click and a Rocket Fish.

    same prob

    I have the same problem with my 2.4 UniMB when it is hooked up to my 56" Toshiba and 24" dell monitor. It seems likes when the computer is really busy the mouse gets jumpy and slow. Is yours doing the same thing, or is it jumpy all the time? Have you tried a direct USB mouse?I have tried several mice. Let me know if you figure anything out.

    ...this sounds like what people report as a BT issue vs a display issue... do you have other wireless devices running at the same time as the BT?

    With regards to trying a wired mouse, no I haven't. I have tried my phone (iPhone app) that works very well. However, the mouse is more laggy and sometimes jumpy. As in it seems to take the command of movement and them gets confused and goes wherever it pleases.

    With regards to other BT devices, I have a older model BT keyboard paired with my mini and then a couple other computers in the house that have BT keyboards and mice or USB (depends on the machine). Usually they're off when I'm planted on my couch.

    That said, the network is wireless and the BT keyboard as connected to my mini never appears to hesitate and it even wakes the mini when I hit a key so I know it has a semi constant connection.
