I apologize in advance, I saw the iOS board, but it looked like that was strictly for mobile gaming so I came here.
My wife and I recently bought a MacMini. I'm really enjoying it, but perhaps some tech folks out here could answer this question for me.
I'm currently using an older Sony TV through HDMI as a display, which works fine, but it's too big. I also have an older (maybe 7 years old?) "Element" tv with an HDMI port. When I use the Element through HDMI, I'm consistently getting no display to the Mini. However, if I'm on my AppleTV using airplay, I can get a mirrored image back to the Element tv no problem. I check in the display settings and it looks like it recognizes the Element...BUT, once I disconnect the AppleTV, the display to the Element vanishes and goes back to saying no signal.
Can anyone figure this one out? Too be honest, I'd rather use this older tv since we had the Sony in our front room. For the time being it does the job, but it's not a long term fix.
Appreciate the help in advance! Thanks!
