Hello, I am not sure if this connection is better for a mac mini but I am using an HDMI cable to connect the mac mini to my Dell 24 inch display. In display under color iT detects the display with the name HD 709-A. But I am just noticing some artifacts wile watching 1080p movies on you tube. The cable is a top of the line monster cable the fastest one I could buy. Is the hdmi on the mac mini just for TV and maybe for a PC monitor I should use the regular connection?
