I have a G3 Server 300 mini tower (beige) set up in my living room as a server for broadband internet access. I also have it hooked up to my TV (I dont have space for a monitor). What I need to do is have an Applescript which, on startup, will turn video mirroring on (when I turn it off and then back on again it doesn't remember to keep video mirroring on). Is this possible? If so, how? I am rubbish with Applescript. Thanks in advance.

Clyde - I may be wrong, but it sounds like you're asking how to do a solution that may not even pertain to your problem. Can you describe exactly what's wrong with your setup?

I say this because video mirroring is a function that doesn't make a hill of beans difference if you only have one display attached. The Mac should automatically try to display to the one device attached if there is only one device.

If I'm mistaken and Macs don't count the TV output as a regular display, try resetting your PRAM (Command-Option-P-R at startup and hold it long enough to let it chime 2-3 times) since PRAM is where monitor information such as mirroring settings is stored.

tv video mirroring is always off at startup. It just does that. I do work at a TV station, and we have an all-in-one g3 that has av out, and we use it for displaying graphics on tv. If the machine is restarted, tv mirroring must be turned on again.
