Hello everyone. I am having trouble with my 15inch early 2011 MBP and my TV. You see, the quality of my computer on the TV is pretty poor. Things are blurry and not well defined at all. My roomy has a 13inch MCB and it looks fantastic on the TV... I don't understand. I am using the same conector cables and everything. His computer is older as well. Why such a difference? Is there anything I could do? Thanks!!

BTW the TV is a 32 inch dynex and I have tried all the available quality settings
QUOTE Thanks

"Quality" settings? On what?

Have you opened up System Preferences - Displays and changed the resolution to the external to 1080p?

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

I have changed it to 1080p but for some reason my roomies computer looks better at 1360x768. As well, his computer shows no option for underscan while for me at 1080p I require underscan so I can see the whole screen. Overall the clarity is much higher.
