  1. OK I am doing some work for a local bar owner. He is getting a PC with HDMI out and wants to feed several TV's via HDMI. We found a splitter on http://monoprice.com and was told by them that it should all work the way we want it to. Anyone think otherwise? Mainly it says that all we would do is extend the desktop and all would be well.

    Mac Mini Display Troubles

    I got my cables from http://sales.unl.edu/catalog/results/Results_By_Category.asp for like $10. It sounds like EDID. issue, SwitchResX 4 may fix you issue, but cost $20, you can test for 10 days.. which version of the OS are you running.. frq is weird as LCD's normaly are all 60hz unless it is out of range for the TV, a 720p is 1280x720 not 1366x786, which is 1080i(scaled) or HD compatible as it can accept a 1440x1080 resolution and scale it down to the 1366x786. but that is not in the EDID codes so it will fail on a computer not looking for a TV set.. you should try and run at 1280x720 for the best results, unless you have the newer mac mini, as the intel graphics card can not do 1900x1080 for 1080P nothing really, Over scan is standard in the TV industry, ,TV's do not need to be 100% as they are not monitors.. so you will have some overscan no matter what PC you use on that TV. More expensive Tv's are really monitors so they do not need the over scan.. you can try upgrading you cable and see if the mac see's the 720p setting like mine does (I have the same version but I bought two weeks after apple changed the model and got it for 299) I use monprice for my av cables.. good prices and good cables.. I paid $4 for a 6ft hdmi 1.3a cable

    Mac Mini Display Troubles

    OK I changed the resolution to 1280 x 720 and 60 hrz. But it is has to have the over scan on to fit the full TV. So what more can I do?

    Mac Mini Display Troubles

    I have an intel mac mini. It is running Lep not Snow lep yet. Was thinking of going to it. It is a mac mini I bought early this year right before they changed it, just like apple. Is there a way to fix this issue for free? I would like to not spend cash.

  5. OK I have a Intel Mac Mini. I am using DVI to HDMI cable to my TV. I am only able to get 62.3 hrz refresh rate. Also, only able to get 1366 x 768 desktop screen size. I want to have it go all out and be max rez. Also, I noticed that I have to click Overscan in TV Options. So any thoughts would help.

    Joomla Help

    Hey guys I recently updated my site to a joomla hosted site. http://www.bogointeractive.com and I want to add a few things to it. Mainly I want to add in a google ads app so I can dump the joomla ads. Also I would like to use the Friend Feed or twitter or some type of news feed in the news flash area. Anyone know how to do this? My server admin is really booked up but if anyone can help me, that would be great.
  7. Hey gang here is a doozy. I have a buddy of mine who wants to use a simple tv input switcher and input his pc monitor via s-video. But we want him to have a second desktop so he can work and not have to worry about personal stuff being shown and have like a youtube video or picture be shown but only using one screen. is there a way to do this simply? We want to use only one PC on this. We are going to be using UStream and the input might get left on and we dont want that to have peoples personal stuff up on the web.

    Windows Vista Sp2 And Ie8

    yah since Sophos is on every PC known to the entire university of Nebraska

    Windows Vista Sp2 And Ie8

    but what you are saying I can not do either of. there is nothing allowing me to uninstall either of them. I am just stuck with that one thing not working until they update anti virus I guess.

    Windows Vista Sp2 And Ie8

    you can't remove SP2 there my friend. Don't see a way to do so. plus why would I do that. I see it is simply a problem with my virus scanner. Everything else all works but that one deal.

    Windows Vista Sp2 And Ie8

    OK I disabled ones that were not verified and here are some that I had to disable. 1) Sophos Web Content Scanner (Sophos is my virus scanner)

    Windows Vista Sp2 And Ie8

    OK it came right up with the no addons version. so what does that mean? Does it mean something funked up some where?

    Windows Vista Sp2 And Ie8

    Tried to reinstall but it will not allow me since it has been upgraded. So who knows what is going on. Maybe just using FF until I reinstall is what I am going to have to do. It sucks because I have lots of stuff that require IE. Also, I tried the no addons and that one does not work either. I launched into safe mode and it works just fine. So I don't get it.

    Have tried other shortcuts, no work. have tried run, no work. Have tried taskmanager, no show up.
  15. OK I have an issue here. I had IE8 installed and just recently installed Vista SP2. Now I can't run IE at all. I can click on the icon over and over and over and nothing. So not sure what happened. I open firefox and it is fine.
