    I just got a refurbished Mac Mini to use as a media center. I have it hooked up to my 52" Sony Bravia television and am using it right now to type this. I have it hooked up via HDMI cables and the display is 1080i. My issue is that there is a bit of clipping on the viewable edges of the screen. What I mean is that the bottom of the dock is clipped a bit (not a big deal), but also the top bar is clipped off the screen (bit of a deal). I can still click on it off screen to access the drop downs, but I just can't see what I am clicking. Is there anyway to fix this annoying problem? Thanks in advance guys...I'm not the most tech savvy person in this world (but I don't think I'm an idiot either).

    If you go to System Preferences --> Displays, you should see a slider to adjust the amount of overscan correction.

    if you got a 2009 refurb look for a little box that reads overscan. also on the system preferences then display. un check the box.
