- 1). Ensure all devices are turned off and plug the Mini DVI end of a Mini DVI to VGA adapter into the back of the Mac Mini. The Mini DVI end is much smaller than the VGA end.
- 2). Plug the VGA end of the adapter into the female end of the VGA to VGA cable. The female end does not have pins in it, only pinholes.
- 3). Plug the male end of the VGA to VGA cable into the VGA port on the back of your flat-panel TV. It looks like the female end of the VGA to VGA cable and is often blue.
- 4). Power on all devices. The image should appear on the flat-panel TV. If it does not, keep pressing the display or input button on your flat-panel remote until "PC" is selected. This sets the image input to the VGA port.
