I want to know if you ever found a solution to the small fonts using 1080i/p resolution. I want the connection to be 1080 but I want to increase the fonts on all apps and icons.

Did the DVI to component actually work in terms of improving legibility? I'm having similarly disappointing results with S-video from the poxy Apple adapter and need to find a better alternative (unfortunately it needs to be a better adapter rather than just a new display!)

I'm aware of the scale of the connectors. As I mentioned I only have access at the moment to S-Video with a Component adapter on schedule to arrive tomorrow. My TV does not have VGA or DVI which would be the best if you can handle it.

Your running a site about the Mac mini as a home theater PC and you don't know anything about video connectors or screen resolution? VGA will give you better video then S or composite. I thought you were supposed to lead, not follow.

As soon as it arrives... hopefully tomorrow!

Could you please let us know what a component adapter would do to improve the experience? I have similar problems with my macmini hooked up to my tv through the vga adapter.

Wow - you are doing a great job for the mac and the HTPC community. I can't wait to read how you get on with the next steps!

The DVI to Component adapter I found at Cyberguys actually courtesy of a reader here... http://www.cyberguys.com/templates/searchdetail.asp?T1=121+2288 I am hoping it actually works... Will post any issues when it arrives. I am hoping it helps readability quite a bit. The playback and access part is great, it's just hard to read text on some things.

Congrats on the setup. I have a similar setup that I've posted about on my site - I'll be adding pictures and detail tomorrow. However, for those out there that have DVI on their TVs, reading text is not an issue. I've been able to browse the web, read emails and documents with no problem. I would imagine the component adapter will help the issue tremendously.

Could you share where you're buying the DVI-to-component cable/converter?
