I just bought a Mac Mini. When I first hooked up (My Mini 1.42 G5)via DVI to HDMI) to my Panasonic TH-50PX60U (50" Plasma) there was a great picture. I opened up the system preferences/display and clicked on something mistakenly. it must have been resolution... The picture went blank.

I hooked up a Dell 15" LCD to turn the resolution back to what I was or hit "cancel" or something but there was nothing I could do it was changed. After switching back and forth (from the HDTV and LCD) for 30 minutes changing resolutions with no success I came here knowing this must be common and I'm just like all other new mac users.

Please Help!

There shouldn't be any issue. The mini should detect the display and choose the correct resolution automatically.
I assume you've powered down the mini and powered it up with the TV attached?
Don't keep switching between the two displays.
What's the rez. of you TV?
