    So I got a new 50 inch monitor



    Ok so I really just got the adapter that allowed me to connect an HDMI cable to a plasma tv.

    I used to try and run it through a PS3, but sometimes the wifi wouldn't be great and so the pic wouldn't come in great. I have FIOS at home, so I'm not sure what more I can do to improve my internet connection.

    looks like horrible resolution

    The Macbook can't handle that big of a screen I guess.

    the pic is from my Iphone, maybe thats why this pic looks bad. I played a movie on itunes and it came in pretty good.

    No not the res of the picture, I mean the monitor. The icons are so big. You know screen res are like 800*680? Well it seems like the resolution is too low, though that maybe as high as it goes for a 50 inch monitor

    if it's like mine, the resolution is 1080p, which is about the same as a macbooks native resolution anyway.

    The icons are larger, sure, but look at the menubar at the top, it doesn't look especially enlarged. Nothing looks fuzzy. I'm guessing it's running at 1920x1080 and the OP simply enlarged the size of the icons, which you can see are also enlarged on the Macbook's screen.
