Hi first time poster here. (Season Greetings)

I could not find an answer to my question when I used the search button.

Problem. When I restart my MacMini, I have to go to setting and click display to reset the screen on my Sony Bravia TV. Is therre a work around to this issue.

Some Details: I am using an upgraded macMini A1176 with 2GB ram, SSD and a Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T7200 , to run XBMC . Whenever Ihave to reboot or restart the Mini the TV screen goes into overscan.

Thank you in advance.

What type of connection between the mini and the TV? Can you use HDMI at all? (with a converter from the DVI or MDP output?)

BTW: Welcome and seasons greetings!

There is your problem right there.

What you need is a dvi to hdmi cable so you don't have to use a adapter the adapter is causing the computer to overscan
