Mac Pro :: Mini Display Port Not Working At Resolutions Over 1600X1200?

Apr 15, 2009

Problem:

Apple Mini Display Port does NOT work at resolutions over 1600X1200 on NON Apple Cinema Displays.

That means if you own any other brand of monitor such as NEC, Lacie, etc. you will NOT get native resolution on your 24 inch monitor as it is stuck at a maximum resolution of 1600X1200.

This story was mentioned on "Macbreak Weekly" show 4-14-2009. I have since checked with a few people and it would indeed seem to be true at this point.

I REALLY hope a solution from Apple comes soon and this is not some new policy of theirs. If so, it may be the last Mac Pro I will or can ever own. The reason is I do a lot of 3D work with C4D, Vue, Modo and Photoshop CS4 so I MUST have a monitor like the high-end ones from Lacie that have 100% color gamut and Adobe RGB. I can NOT be tied down to an Apple Cinema display due to that work. At this time, it seems this means I would only get 1600X1200 resolution on that 24 inch monitor.

I am HIGHLY concerned by this. Has anyone else confirmed this too and if so what the heck is Apple thinking or better still going to do about it? I LOVE my Mac Pro but if they start forcing Apple displays on us then I won't be buying another Mac, it's just that simple.

OS X :: 1440x900 Resolution Does Not Show With Display Options, Although Other Resolutions Do

Dec 31, 2009

I've got the latest Mac Mini and have a Mini DVI to VGA adapter and also a Mini Display Port to VGA adapter. My monitors are a 19" 1440x900 one one the left and a 1920x1080 one on the right. I have the 1920x1080 through the Mini DP connection and it displays a perfect 1080p image. My problem is that the 1440x900 resolution does not show within the display options, although other resolutions do.

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).

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Can Create A Custom Fax Cover When Faxing Using Fax PDF In The Printer Function

May 14, 2012

I have Lion and the old fax program I was using (PageSender), which will not upgrade for use with Lion. I am going back to using the built-in fax option that Mac has in the Printer functions. Is there a way to create and use a custom fa cover sheet? Or am I relegated to jus the simple text the printer window opens with? And, ues, I do need to have a fax - no everyone, especially the older folks that are clients for our business, are using email, or even using computers. That means to service all of my clients, I must fax.

OS X :: External Display Setup (HDTV)

Apr 15, 2010

I finally got my 62" Plasma .. and I want to watch movies with it using my MacBook unibody... I already have mini Dp --> HDMI adapter which works flawless, but My macbook is sitting on the desk about 5 m to the right of the screen so I can't see my mouse moving on the Plasma.When I choose to clone the screen, it will set the Plasma to my Macbook's Resolution, which is not what I had in mind... is there any way i can set my macbooks resloution to FULL-HD?I know my screen can only display 1280x800 pixel at once, but is there a way to make OSX think that this is a Full HD screen? so kinda like a little bit zoomed in Full HD display ? I would be fine if it could work like the magnifying glass (ctrl + scroll)

the second option would be to buy a external 22-24" Full HD monitor for my Desk and a HDMI Y Splitter, i have a 22" but its not full HD (16:10) would that work better if I just use that instead of the built in macbook screen (+ aHDMI y Splitter)

MacBook Pro :: Default Display Changes When Connecting To HDTV

Mar 17, 2012

My macbook pro has been connecting to my TV appropriately for months. The display is suddenly changing to a different default when I connect now. It was fine two weeks ago and has done 3 software updates in between. I have not loaded other new software. When the thunderbolt connection is made, both screens turn blue, then both display a screen resolution formatting that doesn't fit the screens.

Hardware :: Unable To Detect External Display - Sanyo HDTV?

Dec 20, 2008

New MacBook rocks and in cables to hook it up to my Sanyo HDTV 1080p. I plug in the HDMI cable and the picture comes on.

However, every once in awhile the screen goes black and it says "Signal Not Found." Also, every time I turn on the MacBook I have to unplug the HDMI cable, wait a few seconds, and then plug it back in before it will detect the external display.

MacBook Pro :: Project Movies Onto An HDTV... Using Mini Display Port To HDMI?

Jul 7, 2009

With my dad's MacBook pro I was able to hook it up to our HDTV using a DVI to VGA adapter, but we were never able to hook up the audio. Have any of you connected your laptops to an HDTV? If there were a video plus audio solution, that would be ideal, but I'm guessing that is not the case. So is there a cheap video adapter I can buy? My TV has HDMI, VGA, and various component inputs.

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.

Mac Mini :: How To Conncet HDTV Using Mini Display Port Or Mini Dvi?

Apr 6, 2009

I need to connect my 09' Mac Mini to my Yamaha RX-V2700 receiver which outputs to my Sony XBR HDTV. I know the mini has both mini-dvi to dvi and mini-dp to dvi or hdmi available via adapters. I was thinking to go with option 1 however I was wondering what is your opinions? Is mini-display port better over mini-dvi or are they the same? Audio will be carried over optical toslink.

Option 1:
Using mini-dvi adapter to dvi: Connect Dvi-Hdmi cable to receiver and output audio with toslink adapter.

Option 2:
Using mini-dp adapter to dvi or hdmi: Connect Dvi-Hdmi cable to receiver and output audio with toslink adapter.

OS X :: 16:9 Resolutions No Longer Available?

May 14, 2009

I just noticed that all of my 16:9 resolutions have just disappeared from my available resolutions list in system preferences. They were there before. This is true for the resolutions of my 24" external monitor as well. What can I do? I need to have the 720p and 1080p resolutions available. But they're just gone. Every other resolution is there.

OS X :: How To Use Lower Resolutions On A Mac

Jun 28, 2009

I am getting a Macbook Pro where the native resolution will be 1440 x 900 (I think).

Some older games (that I like to still play) do not support wide screen resolutions. On my PC this isn't an issue because under the nvidia control panel there is an option to tell the resolution not to scale. You get a black border around your screen if you do this, but at least it doesn't stretch it which looks awful.

IMac :: Not All Resolutions Available In Windows?

May 14, 2009

I've had my 2009 Mac mini for a while now, and one thing has bothered me and I've yet to find anything on Google for this. I have an Acer 22" X223w monitor and in OS X I can select a bunch of 16:10 resolutions including 1280x800. Using Boot Camp, in Windows I do not have 1280x800 as an option. Is there any particular reason why this resolution would be in OS X but not Windows? Is there a way to get 1280x800 to work in Windows?

Hardware :: 2 Monitors With Different Resolutions?

Aug 4, 2010

I have a 2008 Dual Quadcore 2.8 Mac Pro with the ATI Radeon HD 2600 video card installed that I use in a Pro Tools setup. I just bought a 25" LCD monitor with a 1920 x 1080 resolution. I want to run a 2nd setup to a 21" 1600 x 1200 monitor in the vocal booth with the same view.

Is this possible? So far, the main display defaults to the resolution of the smaller display.

OS X :: Wallpaper Size To Use For Multiple Resolutions?

Oct 9, 2010

My current set up involves my 13" MacBook Pro (1280x800 res screen) hooked up to my external 1920x1080 24" monitor. I love using desktop wallpapers, but am trying to figure out a unified resolution that would match both screen resolutions since I frequently unhook my MacBook Pro and use it without the main monitor attached. I also dual-boot with Windows 7 so I have a shared partition that I have the wallpapers in. I thought I could disconnect the MacBook Pro and have a separate wallpaper for it in OS X; however, since I use it with the lid closed, when I did that, the wallpaper I had on my main monitor was used on my MacBook Pro's screen. For those of you who have a similar set up, what resolution wallpaper do you use that works without adjustment on both 1080p and 1280x800 resolutions? 1900x1200?
