So I bought the brand new Mac mini and connected it to my Panasonic plasma Viera TH-42PZ85U.
I'm extremely happy with the picture quality, after I figured out that putting HD size 2 fixes all problems with overscan and geometry...

But I have this VERY ANNOYING problem that when I turn on the tv, the power LED starts blinking 10 times on a loop and no picture. I have to disconnect the HDMI and power from the tv for a few seconds to get rid of the blinking and recover normality.

I tested all HDMI ports on my tv and tried with different HDMI cables and still happening. I don't have the mini-display-DVI adapter, so I haven't been able to test that output...

I couldn't figure out why sometimes it wasn't doing it, and sometimes it does. But I think I finally figured it out:

If Mac mini is connected and ON when I turn ON the TV, that's when I get the red light blinking 10 times.

In order to avoid this I have to either put the Mac mini in sleep mode or disconnect the HDMI from the TV.

Can somebody tell me how to get rid of this stupid situation?
