"I went to my local high end audio and video store here in San Antonio. I brought my Mac Mini so I could see which TV displayed the video the best.
All of the televeisions Samsung, Mistubishi, etc were able to display my Mac Mini very well using a DVI or DVI to HDMI convertor EXCEPT FOR SONY!!"
"From Fred Connors, Jr. (Thanks!)...
I have had some success in getting my Mac Mini to display on the SONY KD-34XBR960.
First, I discovered that when I removed the DVI cable from back of the Mini and connected the DVI for the SONY, the Mac Mini would in fact recognize the SONY as a 1920X1080 display and sync to that setting, not retaining the setting from the previous monitor. However the SONY will not function at 1080p (only 1080i is supported in the Sony) so the screen was always black. I found this by installing Timbuk2 Pro, remote control software, on the Mac Mini and another Mac on my home network. This also allows me to control the display preference and set the Mini to HDTV720p as a starting point for adjusting DisplayConfigX.
Second, I then found that you cannot adjust the Vertical Front Porch in DisplyConfigX. So I can't correctly setup the vertical positioning of the display. Harald Schweder of DisplyConfigX fame has confirmed this issue and he thinks it will be working in Mac OSX-4, Tiger.
Sorry I cannot give you exact setting figures for the SONY KD-34XBR960, but I will send my interim numbers."
