Does anyone know if it is possible to mirror the desktop at different resolutions without my cinema display shrinking down the viewable area? I have a seperate 27" hdtv in my living room hooked up and I want to be able to use both displays on the desktop. When I choose to mirror, then change the resolution on my cinema display, it makes the actual viewing area the same resolution (in size) the same as the hdtv, and leaves a lot of blox surrounding the viewable area, but the tv looks great. Is there any way I can run the cinema display in full screen used at native resoluting while using lets say the hdtv at 800x600 both mirrored?

I am going to try and switch the ports on the back of my macpro and see if that makes a difference, any suggestions would be awesome!

QUOTE Thanks
