So, bought a Mac for the first time - the new Mini with decent spec. Having read Apple displays over-reflective and over-priced opted for a BenQ VW2430 24" display. Even says on the BenQ advert 'Mac compatible'. So, everything fresh out the box. The BenQ screen simply says 'cable not detected' - so Mac and BenQ not speaking - have checked the connections and even tried a second HDMI cable - but nothing but darkness. Why? So annoying. DVI-D cable is an option too - but (a) don't have one & (b) Mac mini has no output for it anyway. Same story for D-Sub cable. No output on Mac for that either - just USB ports x 4 & HDMI. Initial excitement of the new technology long gone. Why don't things just work?
