10.5: See Time Machine GUI on a headless Mac over ARD
Authored by: darien on Nov 09, '08 10:46:40PM
While the original hint above does a fine job of providing a one-time refresh of the screen, it does not allow the fully-animated Time Machine interface to work across ARD. A trip to your electronics store and as little as $1 in parts can solve this issue once and for all by fooling the Mini into thinking a monitor is attached. I've built two of these in the last week, and they work as expected.

NOTE: You have to restart the Mini after attaching the resisters in order for it to believe there is a monitor attached.
