    using a TV monitor
    I had been using a DELLS2009 1600x900 and decided to try and hook up my Toshiba LED TV to the mac book as a monitor and it looks bad. not as good as I was expected but I know TVs arent meant to be used as monitors. Is there any tweeking I can do at all to improve how text looks?

    Resolution: 1920 x 1080 @ 60 Hz
    Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)
    Main Display: Yes
    Mirror: Off
    Online: Yes
    Rotation: Supported
    Television: Yes

    OK I am in look. the TV has a PC mode. SHEW I am saved. but the screen does look more dull.

    With your Mac connected, go into System Preferences>Displays and play around with the calibration settings for the monitor. I had to do that with my TV when I connected to my Mini.
