    Hi guys need your help. Just bought a new mac mini and a samsung hdmi/vga monitor. I tried to connect my mini to the monitor using an hdmi cable but nothing happened. Help? Does this mean samsung monitors arent compatible with mac or mac mini wont recognize hdmi/vga monitors? Anyone with great suggestions on monitors to use with mini?

    Is the monitor set up to display images coming from the HDMI input. Dumb question I know, but since most monitors have multiple inputs make sure the monitor is set to HDMI

    Check the back - how many HDMI ports are there? If more than one, you will need to check you have it set to the correct HDMI port through the menu.

    I'm using a new Mac mini with a Samsung monitor right now. Probably a settings issue.

    My Mac Mini is working fine with my Samsung SA350 Monitor.

    In the Monitors on screen menu try setting the input to Auto and it will flick through all the inputs until it finds a signal :)
