Display issues on a mac mini


Reading the Apple forums, it appears I haven't been the only one affected by an apparent ATI driver bug affecting at least DELL 20" LCDs, and my Viewsonic 20.1" LCD display at 1600x1200 resolution in DVI-D mode.

It turns out that the refresh needs to be adjusted to adjust to this monitors appropriately, otherwise, "static" appears to be commonly visible on black areas of a screen, during screensavers, and sometimes in applications.

Until then, I'm just going to stick with the VGA interface on my monitor.

Ah, the first rev bug blues.

When will Apple stop keeping things a surprise and actually test their products?
I'm ok with it...

When will people realize it's impossible to test every combination of every product and peripheral, and still release a product while the technology is still current?

It causes static? Big deal. Annoying yes, but it's a lot better than no display at all, or messing up your data. (remember the iTunes 2 installer, now that was a nasty surprise that wasn't tested well)
