    my iBook is dying and i want to get a replacement. Im thinking about the Mac Mini and want to hook it up to my TV. its not a LCD, but it has a HDMI port and Apple Advertises a Belkin PUREAV HDMI Interface to DVI Video Cable. my question is will I be able to set it up as a second computer with Wireless Keyboard + Mouse connected to my TV via HDMI-DVI cable or will the screen just blow and it won't work

    I am assuming your tv/w HDMI is a flat-tube HD-ready tv? if it is then I dont see a problem with it I have hooked up my PC to my bigscreen and ran it out of my DVI to DVI cable to the tv and it worked fine with some fooling around with the resolution but I supect you wont have to fool with your resolution being a tube tv.

    Yes, you can go from DVI to HDMI.

    Depending on your monitor depends on how it will look though. If it's a plasma, it should look as good as a monitor, I've hooked up multiple PCs at work to a 42" Dell plasma and it looks great.

    As long as its HD, it will work fine. Normal TV blows for a monitor.
