    MACBOOK Using Projector as extended display problem...
    Hi, I have a new 13.5inch macbook, illuminated buttons if it helps narrow it down. I use it for djing with Serato softwear. I also use the Music Video part of it. Now, it's fine using a projector cnnected via VGA, in a different club, they use an In Focau projector, connected via cat5 into a cat5 to vga powered adaptor. If I use this, the serato control window/display on my mac expands and is too big for the screen.... Any Ideas???

    Specs:
    27" iMac i5, 3.2 GHz, iPad 3, iPhone 5c, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, Yosemite
    That might be difficult to overcome because of the VGA powered connector. The only suggestion I have is to try increasing the resolution to see if that will bring the serato screen size down to where it will fit. The only problem with doing that is it might introduce distortion to the projected image.

    Regards.
