I believe I am doing the same thing: DVI<->HDMI cable from the mini to
the TV. The mini detects the display (Pioneer PDP) It's just that on
some recordings there is a thin border (on NBC HD the border is grey
and on the bottom and left sides, on many SD recordings the border is
at the top, and contains flickering white bars). Under 10.4.11, I
could use the scaling (second page of playback settings) to
successfully get rid of it.
Under 10.5.5, I can use 1% to remove the border, but the playback becomes jerky.
I am using the "slim" settings for playback-
