So I just got myself a mac mini and a DVI to HDMI adapter. I have a question though, would a DVI splitter, where it takes the dvi-out from the mini and splits it into two dvi connectors, work? I am looking to take my video from mini and send on dvi cable to my TV and another DVI cable to my computer monitor. This is so I don't have to keep plugging and unplugging a cable in the back of my mini when I want to be on my monitor or TV.

So my two questions are, is this possible? and what sort of DVI connection does the mini use? DVI-A or DVI-D? (I am lost when it comes to that)

Here is an example of what I wish to buy:
DVI-A male to VGA female and DVI-A female
or
DVI-D male to two female DVI-D

thanks in advance for your help. I am enjoying my new mini.

Macbook- 2.16GHz core 2 duo/2GB RAM/120GB Hard Drive
iMac 20" Aluminum 2.4GHz core 2 duo/4GB RAM/250GB Hard Drive
PC 3.5 GHz core 2 duo/8GB RAM/160GB Hard Drive/Nvidia GTX 275
QUOTE Thanks
