I have a General Problem. Got an samsung ue 40 6000 and want to connect my Mac mini 2010 via HDMI to HDMI . The only answer I get from The samsung ue 40 6000 is "no Signal". I have no idea what to do. The HDMI Cable Works Fine with an older LCD.
Thanks and Hope for answers.

That's very interesting about the mouse lag. I had an early 2009 mini hooked up to a Sharp TV via mini DVI to DVI to HDMI and had EXACTLY the same issue. It drove me crazy. Unfortunately I never solved it, but I did notice that when I finally took the mini off the TV and hooked it to a regular monitor, the mouse was (and is) fine. It never occurred to me that the TV might have been doing something crazy to the signal, like buffering/processing it. Did you get yours to work OK finally?MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.1)

Currently Being ModeratedAug 23, 2010 9:36 AM (in response to jc0)no, the latest graphics update did not improve the HDMI output. it is still grainy and weird.
I guess, charitably, that my mini server 2010 is not expected to have a display attached but to be used headless most of the time. I had a mini before (80gig) that did not have this problem with the samsung LCD, and does not have it with another screen now.
I upgraded to the new mini server because of the dual HD and I need the storage space. however, I cannot recommend it due to the display issue.mini server 2010, Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedAug 25, 2010 9:18 PM (in response to Peter Krapp)I had the same problem. The delay was caused by my Samsung delay when it was doing its image processing. Putting the Samsung in to gaming mode solved the problem.mini server, Mac OS X (10.6.2), snow leopard server
Currently Being ModeratedSep 2, 2010 2:17 PM (in response to Dennis Whiteman)Denis, you are correct. I do not have Gaming mode on my TV (Samsung UE40 6000) but i set it into "Movie" mode and now the image is crystal clear. Thanks a lot for the tip.

Did you ever resolve this? I have a 46" Samsung LCD and hooked my new Mini Mac up to it yesterday. I originally ahd the same issue as you have described. By changing my Display settings on the Mac to "PAL" instead of "NTSC" made a HUGE difference and the mouse now seems to work fine.
Hope this helps someone!
cheers.Mac OS X (10.6.5)

I also have a MacMini that I bought specially for its HDMI port. I bought 2 Samsung TA550 monitors and CANNOT get both to work. The HDMI connection yields a terrible image which is unacceptable.
I connect the first monitor using its VGA port. That works great.
The second monitor is connected through a HDMI port, and the image is very, very bad.
I have tried HDMI > DVI > VGA cables but they do not seem to work.
I am not satisfied with the Mac Mini and the Samsung monitors. I don't know which one to blame for the problem, but I am not happy with the outcome.
Anybody have any solution to my problem ?
