    Hey guys,

    Ive been working endlessly to get my macbook air a1237 model (1.6ghz) working with plex to output 1080p to my tv with no stutter but no luck!

    Ive got the new plex 9, snow 10.6.6!

    It works fine on my macbook air, all 1080ps run but when i output via dvi to hdmi on my tv i get a constant jitter!

    Any help?

    Your Macbook Air doesn't have enough power to do that. I used to own a MBA 2009 which couldn't do it either. The current MB can, but not without getting a significantly louder fan.

    I'm not sure what to say because I've gotten the output to work without studder, but I haven't downloaded anything or played it back on plex (I've only done 1080p streaming).

    A1370 but I don't see how it makes a difference.

    Sorry, I haven't used Plex.

    Ahh! Lucky one! It makes a massive differnce-you have the nVidia graphics card rather than Intel! That carries all the load for HD, intel is rubbish
