    i am trying to connect my Mac Mini to my 860 Samsung Series 8 HDTV. I am using a DVI to HDMI connector into the DVI port on the back of the Mac Mini. I have plugged the HDMI cable into the back to the Samsung in the HDMI/DVI port. When i which the source to the correct HDMI input i either get a message saying "no signal" or, sometimes briefly, "mode not support"

    What am i doing wrong?

    I used a similar cable to connect one of my Minis to 6 series Samsung LCD with no problems. I used the the HDMI port labled pc/DVI. It's HDMI 2 on my TV. Not sure if that is what made the difference or not, but I've never had any problems

    yeah - i too am using the proper port . . . HDMI/DVI port on my set is HDMI#2. Still nothing. It works when i plug my MacBook Pro into the cable - but nothing when the mac mini is connected
