I have a mac mini (mi-2011) connected to a screen using an HDMI cable.

I have nothing on the screen except several second from time to time.

I tried to autodetect the monitor in the system preferences without success. Do you have an idea how I could push further diagnostic?

Sounds like faulty hdmi cable!. does it work if you plug it in to your TV? – Buscar웃 Sep 11 '13 at 12:34
