MacBook Pro :: Two External Mirrored Monitors Via The Mini DV - DVI Cable - 17"

Dec 10, 2009

In a few months I will be setting up a booth at a comic convention and I would like to have two monitors running on the table to showcase the art. I have a 17" MBP Unibody with one external 24" monitor via the mini-DV - DVI cable. I would like to attach another 24" as well. These two monitors only have to mirror what I am doing on the screen so I just need a cheap solution.

Hardware :: How To Setup Mirrored Monitors

Jul 2, 2009

I have a 24 inch samsung Syncmaster T240 as my computer monitor have my computer also plugged into my tv (Samsung 46"). Both are plugged in through DVI.

I want to have the displays mirrored (have the same image) but my syncmaster monitor always has the black bars on the top and bottom.

It is set to Monitor(1920 x 1200) and TV(1920 x 1080)

Whenever mirroring is off then the monitor takes up all the space and has no bars

is there any way to correct this so my shiny new monitor can take up the entire new monitor space?

MacBook Pro :: Connecting To External Display - Apple Mini Displayport To DVI And DVI To DVI Cable

Oct 7, 2009

I have a presentation tomorrow and need to hook up my MBP to the projector in class. I bought an Apple Mini Displayport to DVI cable, and a DVI to DVI cable. I thought this would be the case, but come to find out the system does not support DVI. So I had to run to Best buy to get a DVI to VGA cable. I tried out the MDP > DVI > VGA rig on my external monitor and got nothing. The screen on my MBP responded by turning blue for a second and then back to normal...but the monitor said "No Signal". Is this some jargon with DVI-D and DVI-I? I need to know by tomorrow morning if I have to run back to the Apple Store and get a Mini Displayport to VGA cable.

MacBook Pro :: How To Connect Two External Displays That Are Not Mirrored And Turn Off Retina Display

Dec 9, 2014

I have two questions:

1.  Is it possible to use two external displays either mirrored or not and turn off the retina display, and if so how it is done?

2.  Is it possible to close the MBP and use an external keyboard while using two external displays?

I am using a music production DAW Persons Studio One-2 Pro and it would be great to be able to have this type of a setup.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting Two Apple Monitors With Mini DVI Plugs?

Jan 7, 2010

I have a new macbook pro that uses a mini DVI port.

I currently have an apple 30" monitor connected to the macbook pro using that mini dvi port. My wife just bought me a 24" apple monitor which also has a mini dvi connector (male). I need either a mini-DVI splitter to create two female mini DVI inputs at the macbook pro to connect these two monitors or an adapter that has a female mini-DVI on one end and a female DVI on the other. I previously had a 2nd non apple monitor connected using UV plus.


So simply--how do I plug in the 2nd monitor.

I have called apple support and searched google with no success. I fear at this point that this is not possible to do. Does anyone know of a solution?

MacBook Pro :: Use 2 External Monitors?

Jul 9, 2009

I currently use a Vista desktop with two 22" LCD monitors. Is there any solution out there that will let me use both of these external monitors with a new MBP? Ideal config would have the MBP in the middle with a 22" LCD on each side of the laptop. would like the dock/title bar on the laptop and be able to move windows over to each of the monitors.

OS X :: Two External Monitors On Macbook

Oct 25, 2009

I'm on a Macbook Black running 10.5 (soon to be 10.6!), and currently have an external monitor hooked up via a Mini-DVI-to-VGA adapter. I'm trying to figure out an option for getting an second external up and running. (I do pdf-intensive research, and, well, you know how that goes. I'd hook up 25 monitors if I could--but I'm just setting my sights on a third screen for the time being!) I've done my homework with the search function, but the advice has been conflicting--some threads have made it sound like it can't be done; some others have said a product like DualHead2Go works. And a lot of threads are just plain over my head.

Mac Mini :: Mac Mini For Home Theater - Standard Optical Audio Cable

Apr 15, 2009

I have just read a ton of forum posts and want to make sure I am going to buy the right accessories to make my new Mac Mini all it needs to be to run my home theater.1. For 5.1 audio, do I need to buy this product and then just use a standard Optical audio cable to plug into my receiver?2. The new Mac Mini comes with a mini DVI to DVI connector correct? So all I will have to buy is a DVI to HDMI cable?3. Is OWC (other world computing) the best place to buy upgrades for the mac mini? I have looked at the videos on youtube and it seems like something I should be able to do no problem.

Mac Mini :: Replacement Flex Audio Cable For 2009 Mac Mini?

Jun 6, 2010

With a sharp fingernail I seem to have damages the internal ribbon cable that connects the audio card in my 2009 Mac Mini, and am looking to source a replacement, preferably in the EU. I'm currently in the UK.The part number is 922-8809.

A Google search reveals a few parts suppliers in Europeland, but they are all charging silly prices for the cable, and US suppliers impose ridiculously high postage charges.

MacBook :: Need Mini DVI To HDMI Cable

MacBook Pro :: Running 2 External Monitors On Unibody

Jan 16, 2009

I'm looking to run two extra screens off of my unibody 15" MBP while still using the screen on the notebook itself for intensive video-editing between FCP and the adobe series. I understand the maximum resolution the mini-dvi port can handle is 1920x1200--no problem. Now, does the maximum resolution change at all if I am running two external monitors (one using the mini DVI port and the other using a USB port via VGA/DVI adaptor to USB).

Can the graphics card handle running three screens at once along with FCP,After Effects, and Illustrator? Can the USB port also push 1920x1200? Or does the USB port on the MBP (I understand each adapter can have different capacities) have a different limit? Or is that 1920x1200 limit the maximum a sole mini-DVI cord can push? You might just say, hey buy a 30" ACD and use the usb/mini-dvi ports to run that at an even GREATER resolution. But alas, I cannot afford to do that yet.

MacBook Pro :: 9600m Vs 9400m External Monitors

Jul 17, 2009

I am just wondering if the 9600m will be better if I am using a large external monitor or multiple external monitors or will the 9400m be basically the same. The only reason I am not jsut getting the 2.66 version is that I do not want to be tempted to game in college. I will also be getting the employee discount 25% from a friend so the 2.53 will cost about $1720 with tax and applecare and the 2.66 will cost $1920 with tax and applecare. Also I am just wondering for those who do not game or do 3-D editing... how often do you use your 9600m?

MacBook Pro :: Losing Ability To Use Two External Monitors

Jun 18, 2010

The hardest thing moving away from my 2.4MBP was losing the ability to use two external monitors. Previously I'd been using a Matrox Digital TrippleHead2Go, driving 2 1600x1200 SyncMaster 214T. So I was pretty upset to suddenly be part of the 'Display Port' nightmare that Apple have inflicted upon us. And not just display port, but Mini display port. Anyway, I was glad to see last week that Matrox had everything back in stock again to finally resolve this issue. 'DualHead2Go DP Edition' sounded like the perfect solution, well almost... Of course I needed a mini DP to DP cable on the input side, and since most sensible monitors still use DVI, I needed 2 DP to DVI connector cables.

2 days later the package arrived. My first disappointment was the cables, 70EUR for three 20cm cables. Wow, that's being really mean. Fortunately the kit includes a DP->DP cable of a bit more reasonable length (50cm?) which allowed me to just get the box under the desk. Although of course the 20cm output DP->DVI cables were never going to reach 2 monitors, no matter how I balanced the box. So 2 DVI->DVI cables later and the whole thing was connected. On the software side I didn't bother with the included CD since I wanted to ensure I had the latest drivers - (running on firmware 1.0.38). The software itself was better than my last experience of a head2go product, at least this time I didn't need a windows machine to configure the device! But I did spend some time double checking the specs that my GT330M was actually supported. It seemed only to offer me 800 or 1024 based display resolution. In the end I picked 1024 anyway just to try it, this seemed to trigger the head2go into detecting my actual monitors! although it still took quite some clicking back and forth between the Apple display settings (eventually set to 3200x1200), and the Matrox GXM software.

Hardware :: MacBook Pro - Dual External Monitors - Portrait Mode?

Mar 26, 2010

I'm considering purchasing a 15" MacBook Pro when the upgraded models are released. I do a lot of coding so I'd like to have at least one external monitor, maybe two. Can an external monitor be configured to portrait mode? That would let me see as much code as possible. Do the MBPs support dual external monitors? What resolution max? I realize that the new models haven't been released yet so it's hard to know for sure. I might just get a 27" iMac for now, then get a 13" MBP later. I'm switching from a 15" Dell.
