hello all, i am having an issue with my mini hooked to my mini. The picture suits me fine, a little tweaking of that left to do. But, i cannot see the bar at the top of my desktop and my icons at the bottom of the screen. if i run my mouse down to the bottom, i can see the icons then due to my Genie effect. I can do the same if i scroll to the top and click and such. How do i adjust my screen size so i can see my desktop as a whole. Nothing like surfing the net from the couch with my wireless though.

You should be able to adjust this via your TV menu. I had the same issue with my Sony, but just resized via the TV and it's looking good now.

In the Displays system preference, look for the overscan checkbox. The symptoms you're having reflect overscan possibly being turned on.
