Default Got my mini on osx 10.6.2! - 12-09-2009, 08:02 PM

Using the guides on here I was able to get my computer to run on snow leapord! Thanks guys, this is great! I love using front row with rowmote on my iphone.... But I am having problems with the VGA output to my tv, I get the gray lines all over the screens I guess thats going to be a fix for today.

Did you select the mirroring option in the Pref panel when you hooked it up?

Run NBI an select the old mirror friendly GMA kext and then unswelect mirroring.
If you don't, there3 will be some problems with your display when running certain software.
Then run NBI again and ***do not*** select the friendly extension above.
