We've confirmed this on this list or the mac envisionaries list that just eh 
adapter alone doesn't work for the latest minis. There has to be a monitor 
hooked to it.  TO confirm this here I used a mini dvi to vga adapter on the 
mini but no monitor plugged into the adapter.  When inserting a video DVD in 
the mini I get the message no monitor detected.  However when I attach the 
monitor to the adapter I then can play the DVD just fine. 

Also I was told that the mini dvi to video adapter no longer works on newest 
minies either due to the analog lines being removed from the mini dvi port on 
the minis.  I'm certainly no expert on the mini as I've only  had it for a 
short time but this is what I know for sure.

  you don't need a monitor, just a display to vga adapter you can get in the 
apple store.

mac minis because voiceover will be slow or sluggish?

    my blog is at http://jkenn337.klangoblog.net (updated frequently). Tired of 
Microsoft Windows and paying thousands for screen-readers? try out NVDA, get a 
mac--, nvda--for Windows, or try out and switch to grml, Ubuntu, Vinux, or 
knoppix-adriane Linux desktops. Knoppix ubuntu and vinux-cli-max are the most 
accessible for beginners. also try vinux-gui and encourage those at 
www.cherrypal.com to use windows-xp and nvda knoppix-adriane Vinux-cli-max or 
grml so all blind people can have an accessible computer.
