    Mac Studio not sending video signal to monitor after long time off

    I've had a Mac Studio for two weeks now. While I love it, I've come across a couple of issues I'm not too happy about. One was a kernel panic caused by Onedrive, and to me, no matter how bad a program might be, an OS should be strong enough to kill it and not let it bring the whole system down...

    Daisy chaining two 27" 5k monitors over DisplayPort 1.4?

    Hi, I have a 2021 14" m1 mbp, and would like to connect it to two 5120x2880 monitors. I know I cannot daisy chain two LG Ultrafine 5ks, or two Apple Studio Displays, but I wasn't sure if I could daisy chain two PROLITE XB2779QQS-S1s. According to this thread, they use a single DisplayPort 1.4...

    M1 Max to Displayport correct cable

    I need to connect my M1 Max to a 6 year old NEC Multi sync display. The cables I'm seeing at Amazon and elsewhere do not have the same adapter as the ports on my machine, shown below. Aren't these the two ports Displayports? If so, what am I missing?

    Three 4k monitors on Sonnet Echo 11 Thunderbolt 4 Dock w/ M1 Max?

    Sonnet's own compatibility matrix suggests that using three 4k monitors via their dock is possible (with the caveat that you apparently need to use their Thunderbolt 3 to Dual DisplayPort Adapter). Theoretically that should be possible since 4k60 uses ~12Gbps bandwidth, and hence 36gbps total...

    Future investments: Gaming Monitor, M1 Macs, DP, USB C, etc.

    Hi guys, I am currently rocking an old Macbook Pro Mid 2014 with a low latency DP1.2 Monitor.

    Mid-2012 Unibody MBP displayport issues

    So basically my mid-2012 unibody mbp 13" has some issues with the displayport. It works and I can use a monitor with it, but when it goes to sleep mode and then comes back on, the monitor doesn't show anything as if it's still in sleep mode. The monitor is being detected and does show under...

    MP 1,1-5,1 mDP - R9 280X - problems on all R9 cards?

    I recently had an issue with my XFX R9 280X with MAC EFI and two brand new BenQ PD2700U monitors. The monitors connect via Thunderbolt cables (and you can plug a Thunderbolt cable in to Mini DisplayPort to get video output only). Upon powering on the system and trying only one BenQ monitor, it...

    MP 6,1 Mac Pro 6,1 - 12core /D700 flicker issue

    So I’ve posted about this before but I’m running out of patience. I’ve had my Mac Pro 6,1 trash can since release. Ironically in the first few weeks of owning it I had a fault., naturally 7£k is a big chunk of money, so with it being so new it was replaced outright by Apple. This in recent...

    I've got a recently purchased Mac mini connected to an old iMac via a USB-C-to-miniDisplayPort cable. Everything works fine except for when I first power the Mac mini on -- the iMac briefly shows the Apple logo, and then the screen goes dark. To actually see the video, I have to disconnect and...

    Picture quality MBP vs. Mac mini

    Hello I got the new Mac mini some weeks ago and is very happy with it. There is only one thing that bugs me. I think the picture quality is worse than it was with my MacBook Pro 2016 (now sold). The MacBook Pro was connected with displayport 1.2 over a Thunderbolt 3 dock but the Mac mini is...

    Is it possible to get more than 60hz on an external monitor with a macbook air (2018) ?

    As the title states. I really like my MacBook Air, the only downside being (Mac in general) the lack of gaming possibilities. I now play games through the Geforce Now streaming service. It's actually quite great, allows me to play any game I like (also windows exclusives). I would like to...
