Have you tried leaving the display adapter that was included with the computer plugged into the mac mini?
and or, do you have the issue when you have a display plugged into the mac mini?
also how are physically connected to the mac mini? (both computer plugged into ethernet to the same router OR like wifi is some how involved?)

Thanks for your response.
The only adapter that came with the mini is an HDMI to DVI adapter and it is not plugged in. The mini has no screen, I used a Samsung TV to set it up. The machines are connected by wired ethernet to the same router. There is a wifi connection to the network from a Powerbook and an iPad.

so if I understand, it's mac mini plugged into router, accessing the mac mini from the ipad or power book from wifi?
have you tried accessing the mini from the powerbook over ethernet with wifi off on the powerbook? if so dose it help with your issue?
I woud suggest try plugging in the display adapter, even if it's not plugged into a dispaly. It can some times tick the mac mini into thinking it has a display plugged in. I've had servers act strange when no display is plugged in, so tricking it to think there is a display plugged in could possible resolve some remoting into issues.

Sorry about the delay in responding but I have been resolving the problem which was bigger than I thought. My LAN has a switched patchboard through which everything is connected and I find it was causing all manner of problems which just got worse in the past 48 hours. Taken it out of the network and everything seems to be fine now.
Thanks for the help.

I have the same problem with the delayed screen. The picture I get just refreshes if I move something (the mouse, a window, etc).
I have a Mac mini server connected via Ethernet to a router. My remote Mac is also connected via Ethernet to the router.
All software is the most recent (mountain lion server, mountain lion, Apple Remote Desktop, Apple Remote Desktop client).
If I connect via Internet to the server, it's the same...
Has anyone an idea for how I could solve this problem?

I have the same problem remotely connecting to my MacMini Server. The screen comes up with a big yellow block in the middle of it and I have to move the mouse to reveal the actual screen. I can also go to preferences and changes the scaling of the display to another setting, then changung back to the original setting. Any ideas?

ARD 3.6.2 client (running on iMac 27 / i7 / OSX 10.8.4) controls 2 mac-mini's via Internet.
Controlling Mac Mini i5 with OSX 10.7.5 works fine.
Controlling Mac Mini i7 with OSX 10.8.4 starts with black screen, the screen freezes up, only refreshed if i move mouse, slow response on keyboard.
Both Mac Mini's are in the same network. Only 1 mac mini is controlled at the same time.
1080p screen is plugged in via HDMI.
Tips, tricks, solution are welcome.
