MacBook :: Unable To Get Required Resolution On Hdtv / Distorted And Blurred Image

Nov 25, 2009

Is anyone aware of an HDTV that supports the MacBook's native resolution? Currently I have a 32" Samsung which does not - first I have to change the resolution on the MacBook to something smaller and then hook up the TV, resulting in a distorted and blurred image. I'm looking to replace the Samsung with something larger, say 40"-55".

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Use Custom Resolution For Tv / Best Resolution For An LCD HDTV?

Aug 17, 2010

So i'm trying to figure out the best resolution for using my macbook pro in clamshell mode. I think ever since i installed snow leopard the new resolution choices i have are not longer pixel x pixel, but actual TV resolutions, such as 1080i, 720p, 420p. In the past I've used SwitchResX to do custom resolutions for my tv but that dosnt seem to work anymore.

I'm trying to find a resolution where text is easy to read. 1080i looks pretty but text is extremely small. 720p the text is larger and easy to see but is very fuzzy and not easy on the eyes. I guess this has something to do with the pixels on a tv being farther apart than that of a computer monitor. It's a 32" LCD TV. I'm using a DVI to HDMI cable (Non-Unibody Macbook Pro).

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Play 1080p Videos / Image Becomes Distorted

Aug 6, 2010

I am running video to a 40" RCA 1080P television via a HDMI to DVI cable from my Macbook Pro. The laptop has a GeForce 8600M GT GPU and has the capability to run 1080P. However, when I port a video (been trying with DVD Player) the image becomes pretty distorted. Is this a limitation of my laptops GPU or something else?

OS X :: Unable To Restore Resolution To Original / Connecting To HDTV Via Vga Cable

Feb 15, 2010

When I plug my MacBook into my tv with a VGA cable, the resolution becomes significantly lower so that the windows will fit nicely on the TV screen. This is great. But when I unplug from the TV, and my resolution restores to normal, my window sizes are all messed up! For example, I normally have iTunes and iCal full-screen in dedicated spaces. Now they look like this (attached screenshots). Any way to have these windows automatically restore to their original size?

Mac Pro :: Image Inside Distorted When Move Window Around Desktop

Mar 22, 2012

When I move a window around the desktop, the image inside it distorts really badly. I have tried a new graphics card, but still does the same. I have booted up from a different system but still the same. It is a Mac pro 4.1 with a GT120 video card. Took the card to work today and tried it in my mac at work and it worked fine. Brought my video card and hard drive from work and put it into my mac at home and the same thing happened. Any body got any clue to what it is. Really don't feel like forking out for a new Logic board. Also, when I scroll down with the mouse, the text stretches in the window.

PowerPC :: Viewing Output Of 1366*768 Resolution / Upgrade Required?

Mar 17, 2007

I've got a 37" LG LC2D panel and a G5 PowerMac with dual DVI outputs. I just picked up a DVI->HDMI cable, expecting it output to a resolution of 1366*768. However, the only options I have are: 1024*768, 1280*720, and 1920*540 (which doesn't work). Is it not possible for the Mac to output to a 1366*768 resolution on the 256MB GeForce 6600 PCI Express? If not, what are my upgrade options?

Software :: Safari Page Image Quality Dropped In Resolution / What To Do?

May 6, 2008

I've recently noticed that the quality of images in Safari have dropped in resolution. I have downloaded Firefox and tried this application and this has the same problem. I looks like a Mac OS-X setting issue. I was testing what the cmd-F10, CTRL-F9 etc and other combinations do when the quality shifted. I have a MacBook Pro running Leopard (4 GB, 2.5 Ghz). Images in all other applications look fine.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Change External Monitor Resolution?

Apr 6, 2012

I use an external monitor from Dell with my Macbook Pro 13.3". For some reason I am not allowed to set this monitor at highest possible resolution? Or perhaps that's the best for this monitor which admittedly is quite old. But when I go into my system preferences it shows option for higher resolutions but doesn't allow me to select one.

MacBook Pro :: Unable To Get Native 2560 Resolution On External Monitor

Jun 27, 2014

I have a Samsung SB970 S27B970D 27-Inch Screen LED-Lit Monitor with native resolution of 2560x1440. When I connect it to my 2012 13" MacBook Pro via mini display port to DVI, I am unable to get anything better than 1080p. 

Here's what System Information shows for my displays. Intel HD Graphics 4000:   Chipset Model: Intel HD Graphics 4000  Type: GPU  Bus: Built-In  VRAM (Total): 768 MB  Vendor: Intel (0x8086)  Device ID: 0x0166  Revision ID: 0x0009  Displays:Color LCD:  Display Type: LCD  Resolution: 2560 X 1600  Retina: Yes  Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)  Mirror: On  Mirror Status: Hardware Mirror  Online: Yes  Built-In: Yes  Connection Type: DisplayPortS27B970:  Resolution: 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz  Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)  Display Serial Number: H3HCA00500    Main Display: Yes  Mirror: On  Mirror Status: Master Mirror  Online: Yes  Rotation: Supported  Television: Yes 

As you can see, 2560 should be supported. 

Also note that we have two different MBPs and two different Samsung monitors (same model, ordered at different times) that do the same thing.

Oct 28, 2007

I remember seeing a screenshot of Leopard where the terminal was transparent, as well as blurred (like the menubar). This would greatly help readability, especially on certain backgrounds, but I can't figure out how to do it. Is this a feature of the new Terminal?

OS X :: Unable To Connect Mac Mini To 720p Proscan HDTV?

Jun 12, 2009

I've got a 2007 generation Mac Mini and a 720p Proscan HDTV with a VGA input. When I hook it up and crank up the Mini, the apple logo appears (on the standard gray startup screen), but when the OS starts to run my TV loses the signal and a message pops up that says "Not Support!" How can I fix this? Better yet, can I fix this? Are they just not compatible? I ordered a DVI to HDMI cable to give that a shot, but I've got a feeling it's not going to work.

In full screen mail when I compose an email it looks like this: As you can see the fonts and toolbar features are duplicated and blurred.

Nov 4, 2010

I have an iMac 27 and I want to connect it to a HDTV samsung 46 full HD. I have conected from displayport to HDMI and i get the screen. But at the same time I have connected a 3,5 minijack from the computer to the RCA audio in of the TV but I dont get sound. I have checked the config of the TV and I dont find any place to activate it. Then, talking about the screen. I have few questions.

How can I stop the screen on the iMac and work only with the HDTV?

How can I config that the windows on the tv have bigger letters while they keep on the same way on the i Mac's screen?

The tv is kind of far away and is difficult to see the letters.

OS X :: Unable To Connect To HDTV / Screen Turns Blue With System Crash

Jul 4, 2009

The first time I connected to my HDTV using a mini displayport-dvi and a dvi-hdmi adapter, it worked flawlessly. Stupidly, I set my TV to a resolution it couldn't support. Now the screen only turns blue until System Preferences eventually crashes and the TV gets no signal.

I've tried clearing my PRAM, deleting the profile in the colorsync folder, and even deleting /Library/Preferences/ out of desperation. I've confirmed that it's not a problem with the adapters by successfully getting another HDTV to work. Where could could OS X be storing the display's settings?

Hardware :: Unable To Recognise External Monitor / HDTV Recognises Connection

Apr 10, 2009

However Ive just bought a LG M2794D 1080p tv/monitor and now have a problem. The TV is showing it recognises when the HDMI cable is connected to the macbook (on the screen the input menu shows live connections) or not through HDMI cable and mini-DVI to HDMI connector but the macbook does not recognise any external monitor. In display preferences there is no arrangement tab either and no resolution greater than 1280 x 800. Of course the TV has full 1080p resolution.

Software :: Unable To Get Display / Hooked Up To Sony HDTV Via HDMI To DVI Cable

May 10, 2009

I recently received a late 2007 mac mini as a hand me down from my parents and I'm trying to hook it up to a Sony HDTV via HDMI to DVI cable. I bought the cables I needed and attempted to set it up, however when I turn on the system nothing appears on the display. I've been searching posts and various forums, but haven't really made any progress because most troubleshooting guides are focused upon display problems like pixels and refreshes.

Unfortunately I don't have a VGA monitor to use (which is what the mini was previously used on) to try and see if that works.
