    I had to plug it in to my Windows computer for a sec to update formware on an HDPVR. I try to plug the monitor back in to my HD PVR and it doesn't detect the signal. My mac isn't trying to SEND a signal. I tried restarting, and I can't do "detect displays" because this isn't a notebook.

    This is confused, indeed. How did you plug your Mac mini into your Windows computer?

    Hold down the Option key while you are in the Display preference pane.

    ConfusedB, it looks like you're having all kinds of problems with your monitor (or monitors?) on your computer (or computers?):

    All a little bit confused (and confusing). Why don't you start to un-confuse this by letting us know exactly what kind of equipment this is about and which OS X version you are using. You never know, you might get some answers ...

    Late 2012 Mac mini and 10.8.4. The TV issue was fixed when I updated to 10.8.4, I probably just needed a restart.

    I plugged the Monitor in to my Windows computer.
