    I'm following two different threads related to my new Mac mini and just realized that this thread has only 4(5 now) pages.  I would think that this issue would effect the same amount of people as the 'video blinking' problem.  I guess because the inability to update is not as noticible as the video blinking out, but still...the video thread has grown by 14 pages in the last week, three pages here in the same time.  Nearly 10 times the replies and about 30K more views than this thread.

    Interesting observation. I personally have not had any issues with video blinking. I've had two different 2012 minis (my first one got swapped out in the hope that it would fix something) both ran on 10.8.1 and I'm now running the "broken" 10.8.2. Haven't seen the blinking issue even once.

    Does anybody here have a copy of the dmg image of the 10.8.2 release that has been pulled off by Apple last week ??

     

    Thx a lot

    Look above and you will see a link on CNET.

    Apple pulled it for a technical reason, unless you know exactly WHY it was pulled you're rolling the dice with your OS.  It's your machine but don't whine when other things start getting weird.

    Apple has just reissued the OS X Mountain Lion 10.8.2 supplemental update and now you should be able to update from 10.8.1 to 10.8.2.

    The video problem I'm referring to is the inability for the mini to drive a Wacom Cintiq 20WSX monitor at its native 1680x1050 resolution. A previous mini 2011 worked fine. I've tried both the Apple Thunderbolt-to-DVI and Apple HDMI-to-DVI adapters. Both can go no higher than 1280x1024. Perhaps the video problem is related to the 10.8.2 update being pulled from distribution.

     

    I'm having the exact same issue with my 13" MBP Retina and my Wacom 20WSX.  I'm guessing it's something to do with the Intel 4000HD Graphics since my 15" MBP Retina works perfectly with the 20WSX.

    I have this exact problem.  I have the Cintiq20WSX and I bought the new MacMini running OS 10.8.2 and can not get the native resolution.  I have tried 3 different MDP to DVI adapters and one worked for about a day then went out.  The Cintiq still works on my old late 2006 24" iMac via the Mini DVI to DVI.  Apple Genius bar were stumpped too.  I think it is the OS.  I had the same issue on the late iMac but upgrade to Mountian Lion and the problem was fixed.  There is something not right in the OS 10.8.2 that is causing this I think unless anyone has a suggestion to fix this issue.

All other Macs at the apple store not using that graphics card give the proper native resolution. The Apple Genius Bar folks had no answers for what is going on. This is all very frustrating. I may have to buy an older Mac that uses a different t graphics.
