MacBook Pro :: Finding Dual Display Setup

Oct 13, 2010

I have been running my macbook pro open, with a single monitor running beside it. I have come to the conclusion that I would benefit from two large monitors while working at home.

I know I need to buy the dualhead2go DP edition, but what Im not sure about is the cables I need to hook up to my monitors. I haven't yet decided what two monitors I am going to hook up to it, although they will be exactly the same and have HDMI connections.

What I am planning on doing is Getting the Dual Head 2 go, along with 2 DisplayPort to HDMI converters, and 2 HDMI cables, Correct me if Im wrong, but this should work?

Also, If anyone is currently using a dual head to go, how is the performance? I wont be doing any gaming, so that is not an issue, but for day to day tasks I assume everything will run fine? Im running the 330 in my 15' MBP.

MacBook Pro :: Connecting Dual Monitors / Usb Monitor Adapters Or DVI Connections

Sep 7, 2009

I have a new 2010 MBP and I'd like to hook up two external monitors to it, more specifically, two ASUS VW246H 24-Inch Widescreen LCD Monitors. Either via HDMI or DVI connections. I've found various usb monitor adapters, but i've read that many can't quite 'keep up' and I really can't seem to find a solid solution out there.
So does anyone have a dual monitor setup they currently use, if so, what are you using to connect the mini display port to both external monitors.

the mini displayport to DVI and VGA adapters from I received them yesterday, and I was able to test them today with the Dell 24" LCD (1900x1200) at work, and both were able to drive the screen.They aren't quite as spiffy looking as the Apple-branded ones, but the combined total with shipping for both was a less than 1.5 one of the Apple ones.

OS X :: Dual Display - Power Down And Disconnect The External Display

Oct 26, 2008

I have a question about using dual displays with my new macbook. The basic issue is this:

1: plug in second display and setup dual monitor support to use the external hi-res display and the macbook's display (no problem here).

2: drag windows to the external display and resize to use (no problems here either).

3. Power down and disconnect the external display.

4. Start up the macbook without the external display and try and open up a program that I was using previously on the external display. The problem is that it is resized and positioned for the external display and is now off the screen of my macbook display and I can't directly get to the title bar to move it or the resize corner to resize it.

MacBook Pro :: Configuring Dual Display In Advance

May 1, 2012

When I give presentations, I like to bring my own MacBook Pro so I can get right on it with all my preconfiguration. However I am staggered by the hassle of getting the dual display setting right. Usually when I plug the MacBook Pro into the projector it will give me an unpredictable display setting, and I will usually have to spend some five minutes to configure it correctly before I can launch into the presentation.

In situations when I am only allotted something like ten minutes this eats up my precious time in a big way. A valid solution is to rehearse with the projector and refrain from plugging anything into the computer between then and the presentation, but often times I have no control over what projector I will be using until the last minute.

My question is, then, is there any way I can preconfigure the display setting (two independent displays, with the desktop set to my monitor's native resolution, the VGA to 1024*768, with the laptop monitor being the primary display) that I can plug in the projector and begin immediately?

MacBook Pro :: Bootcamp Win 7 Dual Display (on Thunderbolt To VGA)

Jul 4, 2012

I've been having a nightmare getting WIndows 7 to work properly with the second display on my MBP 15" (Early 2011) i7. 

I'm currently running Lion 10.7.4 which works fine on both the internal laptop panel and the external AOC monitor through a Thunderbolt -> VGA Apple Adapter. 

Bootcamp installed Windows 7-x64 with no issues, but when it came to trying to get the second monitor fired up it wouldnt. 

I noticed when I installed WIndows and when I boot into it, that the screens mirror one another, I take it this is the Intel GPU running. I'll explain why in a bit. 

1) I updated all the bootcamp files through Apple Update, no change

2) WHen I extend the displays, Windows sees the display, make and model without any issues, but it gets no signal

3) I then manually removed the ATI Radeon HD6xxx drivers manually, rebooted and both displays mirrored again throught a 'standard VGA adapter', this is why I assume this is the Intel kicking in.

4) I downloaded the latest ATI Drivers... ATI Mac Drivers -> Bootcamp -> Macbook Pro

5) Rebooted, and still stuck at step one now... 

Mac OS X (10.7.4)

MacBook :: Finding An External Display That Matches My Black MacBook Display

Mar 2, 2009

As the title states. I am looking for an external display that matches the display on my black MacBook. I want one with the same gloss finish as my MacBook, this way I can calibrate both screens to look the same. That way when I switch screens it doesn't look different.

Anyone know of a screen that looks identical to the (previous generation) MacBook? I was thinking of getting a Samsung T240 but it has a different finish. How are ASUS screens? Any screens out there that have the same gloss finish?

MacBook Pro :: Dual Display / Watching Full Screen Video?

Jul 21, 2009

I have a Samsung 2033SW hooked up to my mac and whenever I play video full-screen on on screen (either the laptop or the samsung), the other screen blacks out. This happens whether I use VLC, RealPlayer or Quicktime. How do I set it up so that I can play full-screen video on one and still be able to use the other screen for other stuff?

I'm pretty sure it's not because there aren't enough resources because I can still play "fit-to-screen" on one screen and still have access to the other screen.

OS X :: Finding Dual Partitioning A Hard Drive

Aug 11, 2009

I'm looking to use a single external hard drive to use as a backup for my files between my two laptops. One MBP, one Dell. I need some help with how to partition the drives correctly.

I will be moving files over 4GB, so FAT32 is not an option, plus the drive will be at least 500GB, and I know FAT32 sometimes has issues when partitioned that large. So FAT32 is out. What I'm looking to do is have half of the drive formatted to NTFS, and half formatted to HSF+.

OS X :: IMac With Dual Display / How To Add A TV To The Set Up?

Mar 28, 2009

Got my iMac today, working great, but need help on how to hook up a TV to my system. Because my iMac is hooked up to the ACD 24" display, so the extra mini dvi port is occupied by the ACD, so then how do I hook up my 37" LCD TV to the iMac, so I essentially have three monitors hooked up to my iMac.

The ACD plugs into the iMac no problems of course, but my TV will be a different story, it's has two HDMI ports, S video and the 3 rca inputs.

Is there a splitter or something I can buy so I can add the TV to the set up. I've seen photo's here on this forum with 3 even 4 monitors hooked up, but I have no idea how to do it, searched here for a while as well.

Does anyone know exactly what adapters I need to buy to get the TV hooked into my dual monitor system?

OS X :: Dual Display And USB To DVI With Snow Leopard

Aug 29, 2009

I got a 24" iMac (2.93 GHz Core 2 Duo variety) about 6 weeks ago and hooked up my Matrox DualHead2Go to find it wouldn't push the two external monitors to their 2x1680x1050 potential. Ok fine, I got an Arkview USB2 to DVI adapter and had one monitor attached to the inferior DVI port, the second connected to the Arkview adapter and both worked at 1680x1050. Today I updated the box to Snow Leopard to find that neither solution works any longer.

The Arkview adapter simply disappeared. The computer refuses to see it and the console seems to indicate that it tries to talk to the adapter but gets nothing back. My guess is something changed in the way SL talks to drivers which trashed that solution. Then I tried the Matrox again thinking 2880x900 is still better than 1680x1050 and while it sees the Matrox box and sees it as 2880x900, the second monitor never "lights up". Does anyone know of anything that actually works with SL that will let me attach the two external monitors?
