I bought my Mom a new base model Mac Mini for Christmas and we were experimenting with the monitor connection in order to get the best picture quality. I'm connecting it to a 4 year old 23" 1080p monitor/TV with both HDMI and DVI connections. The moniitor is a Samsung HD2333 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824001341 When we connect the monitor directly to the Mac Mini with an HDMI cable the picture is much worse than with a DVI cable and the DVI to HDMI adapter that came with the Mini. When we are looking at the monitor for "computer work" (i.e. Desktop, Web browsing, Office applications, etc.) the letters on the screen are much sharper with the DVI connection than with HDMI. With HDMI the letters seems to have a bit of a halo effect around them. Am I doing something wrong, or is DVI generally going to give a sharper computer image than HDMI. Thanks in advance for any input!
