    please bear with me as it is confusing for an old chap like me to put into words but i will try my best,i bought a 2014 mac mini for my wife and then went to Maplins to buy a DP to DVI connector to connect the mac to a HP monitor and all worked fine,i then thought of connecting my old about 10 years old mac mini with snow leopard to a Ferguson television after going to Maplins again to buy a DP to HDMI connector,i had the television set to HDMI source but all it said on the screen was HDMI no signal.
    so i took my old box and took the vga lead out of the dvi connector and put into the vga port on the old box and everything worked fine,i then took the old box and connected it to the dp to hdmi connector but still got hdmi no signal,in the meantime i reconnected the dp to dvi connector to the new mac and now it is saying no signal as well even the source is set as dvi
    so at the moment i have 2 mac minis that are both showing no signal?
    thank you.
