    Hi Charles and Tom,

    I have the same problem with a 1 day old mac mini i5 2500 and a 24'' cinema display I have bought about 1 week ago. Black flickering from the first minute after first start. I tested the display on my old mac mini and it was ok. I connected the new mini via HDMI to a TV and it was also ok. But the new mini and the 24'' display doen't work together.

    Greetings from Berlin

    After a clean reinstall of Lion it still flickers, although not that often. It get worst when the screen comes back from sleep.

    Is this happening with all the mid 2011 minis or just the ones with AMD graphics?

    New Mac Mini mid 2011, top of the line model upgraded to i7, running Lion updated as of today.  Exact same issues as everybody here with the 24" LED display (bought 13 months ago).  Went today to the Genius Bar with a video recorded on my Iphone showing the screen going black from time to time. The guy confirmed that this is a known issue after looking in his system (although Thunderbolt is advertised to be fully compatible with the display). The only answer I got was to wait for firmware update, and that I should expect some problems when buying a new device . This issue has been around for several months with the early 2011MBP and there is still no software update...

    Anyone have any updated information on this?  Same thing happening here.  24" LED cinema display with 2.7 i7 mac mini.  black flashes for 2-3 seconds, intermittenly, sporadically.  so annoying.  I have reinstalled Lion to no avail.  Called Apple support, was told this is a known issue and asked to "capture" my product.  did the whole caputure thing.  waiting for Apple to get back to me.  thanks.

    Thanks Charles, for the information.

     

    I may just initiate a return of my 2011 Mac Mini because: (1) after reading countless numbers of posts concerning the 24" LED cinema display and the 2011 MBP's (same problem that we are seeing), I am not confident that Apple will find the fix; and (2) I don't think I can get an upgrade from 24" to newer 27" LED considering that I bought my 24" LED the month they were introduced on October 2008.  This is definitely between 24" LED cinema display and thunderbolt.

     

    P.S.  What adapter are you using?

    Hey guys,

     

    I personnaly decided to return my Mac Mini for reasons simlar to humming. Given the considerable time elapsed since the released of the February 2011 MBPs which suffer from the same problems, I could not think of waiting for a potential software upgrade to be relased. It still remains a major issue, if no update comes up our ability to use the newer Mac computers with the display will be limited. Furthermore, the display might lose considerable value (a display that only works with Mac, but only the old ones !). Therefore, I am going to wait a few weeks to see what happens especially since there is possibly more potential 24'' screen users that will be upgrading to the new mini. The issue might get even more widespread and hopefully this will stimulate Apple to do something. If nothing happens I will be seriously thinking of selling my display. Not the best solution given the price I paid for the display not too long ago.

     

    Keep me updated on your decisions or if any successful upgrade comes up.

    Has anybody tested the adapter solution with a mac mini 2011 and a 24 LED display ?

    I can't wait for a software fix more than a few days…

    Pierre,

     

    I'm using the Atlona adapter without problems.

    Yes Charles, that is my setup. The camera and audio are carried through the display's USB cable.
