Mac Mini :: Connect A Cinema Hd Display To A Late Model 2006?
Mar 26, 2012
I can not figure out how to connect the power on the cinema display. It looks like it would plug into the back of the mini where the macmini would normally plug the power in. Not sure if I am missing something. I also do not know if I need to plug all 4 connections the video, usb, hdmi, and iguess what is the power plug in or just certain plugs.
if I can connect an Apple Cinema Display (model 1083) to a brand new MacBook Air or MacBook Pro?I have read so many comments about DVI, DVI-D, dual link, single link and different connections that I am not sure where I stand!There is the "Mini DisplayPort to DVI Adapter" which works with the Thunderbolt port on the Air, but not sure if this will work to connect a 30" Cinema Display to a MacBook Air or Pro?
I have one of these Macbooks that I want to pass on to the daughter of a friend for use in college. To try and extend its life and usefulness a little I was wondering if I could add more memory. I'm aware that the Apple tech specs state that 2GB of PC2-5300 DDR2 is the maximum supported, but since I have 2 x 2GB of that memory spare I was wondering if anyone here on the forums know different?
As the title says, I need a new monitor for my old G5 as the old monitor for it went bust. Apple does not make the old displays that came with the unit anymore and the only available monitor is the new LED ones ? but they all come with mini display ports
If I am in the market for getting a 30" Apple Cinema display, which is now a discontinued model, where is the best place to get one? Will I be able to find one "new in box" anywhere? Or should I buy refurbished? What about buying on eBay? What would be the best route to go for getting one? I just got a Nikon D7000 Camera and I'm looking at a larger display for editing high resolution photos, something matte without glare. I do like the 30" Apple display, but I know it's discontinued now.
i am contemplating buying a late 2008 mbp air i found for $800 on CL. it has the 1.86 ghz 2gig ram and an 128 gb ssd. would that be comparable to the new 2010 version? i know the new one will edge it out, but by how much? i do a lot of art using flash, illustrator, and ps but just want to use this machine occasionally when i travel, ill have another machine for the heavy lifting if needed be. is that a good deal? or should i just wait and get the 2010 version which is double that?
Whenever we upgrade the Mini to an iMac, I have this vision of getting a vertical mount to hang our 20" Cinema Display under the counter in the "bill paying/desk area" of our kitchen. The issue I have is that I'm looking for something that will hang over the back of the display that you can hold the Mini in that does not take up the screws needed for the mount.
I'm thining of bending some Lexan to fit it in (see picture) unless anyone knows of something similar already out there to purchase.
Then I can just get a wireless keyboard/mouse and it will be a clutter-free area.
my boss just got a Mac 37in cinema display and insists on me trying to find a way to connect it to a vga, Apple has no converters and told me to check this site for some different way of getting it to work on an IBM computer.
I have an old "apple cinema hd display" ... how do I connect to my new mac book pro. The cord coming out of the display is one big cord that turns into 4 cords (1. power, 2. firewire, 3. usb, and 4. the monitor plug that has 2 sets of 9 prongs and 1 dash). I just got a refurbished macbook pro 2.3 GHz Intel core i7 built in Feb 2011.Any ideas how to connect..On another note ... with my wireless apple mouse, what was once swipe down meant scroll down on the screen ... now it's swipe down is scroll up ... is there a way to reverse that?
Just got a 20" Apple Cinema Display LCD that didnt come with the power cord. It has a usb, firewire, DVI and the cable to connect the power supply. What is the best way to connect this screen to my MacBook Pro? Is it possible to have it powered through my laptop?
I have just purchased a 2009 edition Mac mini and would like to use my 20" Cinema Display with it. My brother has an aftermarket ADC DVI adapter that I can use. My question is this: will the image quality suffer in transfer with the aftermarket adapter as compared with the Apple adapter?
I have a G5 dual (PowerMac7,2) with a Radeon 9600 pro card running an HD cinema display (clear plastic) and want to connect a second smaller 20" Cinema Display with the same type of plug - I think I need a DVI to ADC adapter - is this the case?
I have a 23" Apple Cinema Display but it only accepts DVI input and my laptop only has HDMI output. Would I be able to buy a HDMI to DVI-I converter without loosing any signal quality? If so, would it be expensive? I know some of them are upwards of $300.
The ridiculously long thread title pretty much says it all. Is it possible to buy one of Apple's ATI Radeon 4870 cards with the mini-display port connection, install them in a PC, and then use the LED Cinema Display with a PC?
I own a MPB and an Apple 30" cinema display with a fill sized DVI connector. For work I have a PC with a female VGA output jack. I tried to use a female 'DVI to male VGA' connector I bought at Frys but the PC just won't drive the ACD.
I have a macbook pro unibody 15inch, the 24 inch cinema display, as well as bluetooth magic mouse, and apple keyboard. Wondering whats the best way to connect and disconnect my computer with the display if I plan on using it in clamshell mode? Should I sleep it before I connect or disconnect? Does it matter?
I know for a while now a lot of people have been wanting a way to hook up the PS3 (or any other non-Mini DisplayPort device for that matter) to the LED Cinema Display. There is finally a way to do it now thanks to Atlona Technologies.For any DVI-enabled Mac or PC all you will need is there new DVI to Mini DisplayPort Converter.Now for the PS3 it is a little more complicated. You can't simply use just the DVI to Mini DP Converter, because the LED Cinema Display doesn't support any of the resolutions output by the PS3. So to fix this you need their HDMI Scaler.
Probably a stupid question, but are the older Alu 23" Cinema Displays compatible with the brand new Mac Minis or would I need to purchase some kind of adapter to make it work? Just wanted to be sure before I make the plunge.
I have a mac mini core solo and also have a 20inch cinema display (the one with no camera) and I want to add a webcam onto it. Now do I have to use the apple iSight or can I use any old webcam to go with it?
