Any Help or suggestions please?
Searching has turned up people with similar issues, but they are using external hard drives, or frontrow.
I am having this issue by playing video files from my Mac Mini Hard drive, not using any extra peripherals, and playing on the standard monitor attached to the computer.
I am also using Apple software, and no 3rd party players, codecs or anything else that would be involved besides Apple parts & software.
I've also done a disk check & repair, as well as permissions check/repair. And everything is clear in that department.
So Now I have brought the Mini to the Genius bar.
I plugged in the computer to their monitors, using the Apple USB video thing on their cinema displays, and of course, the problem went away!
I told them I do not use that cable at home. I use a DVI cable, and we should try and re-produce what my problem is at home.
They did not have any DVI capable monitors, but could use the DVI out port on the mini, into a VGA monitor.
This monitor didn't skip the video!
Then, thinking the problem had been magically solved, I went home.
And plugged in the DVI-Cord. Immediatley the video lagged and skipped.
Somehow this problem is in relation to the DVI between my Mini and my Monitor.
At this point I have tested my monitor with another computer that plays DVI, and there was no video skipping.
Does anyone have any suggestions now?
By the way. My setup is a Dell 2407fpw, DVI Cable, and Mac Mini.
