I am having problems getting my new mac mini and dell u3011 to play well together. The max resolution i can get it up to is 1600*1200. I know the monitor can do 2560*1600 thru the dvi port. I am running the dvi wire to the dvi to hdmi adapter that comes with the mac mini. Is this the problem? I found on the apple forums at one point that the Mac Mini was capable of 1920*1080 thru HDMI, I don't know if this was older macs or not. I also found on that same board that thunderbolt capability took it up to 2560*1600. I am so frustrated. I was on phone with apple for 2 hours and they were looking at the same things I was. this is the conversation i was referring to. https://discussions.apple.com/thread/3803303?start=0&tstart=0 Please help. I feel I need this but I don't want to spend $99 and this not be what I need. http://store.apple.com/us/product/MB571Z/A/mini-displayport-to-dual-link-dvi-adapter Is the second no usb port on that fit into the mac mini thunderbolt. Thank you all so much for your help.
