My Mac mini Setup Process

Integrating my Mac mini with my entertainment center was an overall painless process. Everything went very smoothly. I did, however, pick up on a few notes along the way that I think others will find interesting:

  • DVI-to-HDMI looks excellent, but some picture adjustments are recommended
  • to ensure you're seeing everything correctly, set your TV's picture size to "Screen Fit"
  • 1080p content plays fine, for the most part
  • using a standard audio-out cable for speakers works great

I realize all of the above may seem obvious, but I am sure someone will get something out of it. If you're thinking of going this route, then just do it. You'll be glad you did! Using a Mac mini on a 1080p TV is quite the experience.
