    Resolved Help/Idea - MBP M1 Pro/Max No Display Output in HDMI with Clamshell mode

    I wonder if anyone experience the same issue with MacBook Pro 14/16 with M1 Pro/Max chip; if you only plug in HDMI cable to your monitor and a mouse via USB. Close the MacBook Pro lid down into clamshell mode. The display will never wake up, as if the computer is just sleeping. No matter what I...

    App windows resized to lower left of screen when waking from sleep/monitor off

    I have an M1 Mac Mini connected to a 27" LG 4K monitor via HDMI. I usually have three other apps apart from Finder open at all times. These are: Mail, Firefox and Telegram messenger.

    powered hub or not?

    My Early 2015 Macbook (Retina, 12-inch) only has a USB-C port. Is it possible to connect using it 2HDDs (via USB), a display via HDMI and the MBook's charger cable? Of course, all that would be connected through some hub. So the questin is if that hub should be powered or not?

    M1 vs M2 Thunderbolt Ports

    Recently purchased the M2 MacBook Air and I’m looking for an HDMI adapter. When I look up compatibility on the Apple Store app, the only option is the USB-C Digital AV Multiport Adapter. Are there any fundamental differences between the previous thunderbolt ports and the one on the M2? Any...

    USB-C Dock: HDMI 2.0 and HDR?

    Hey all, apologies if this has been answered a million times. However, if I run a dock like this:OWC Travel Dock and connect my monitor to the dock, and the dock to my MBP via the USB-C port, why doesn't HDR enable anymore? The monitor has it (and works if I plug the HDMI cord into my MBP...

    How can I get my Mac to properly identify my monitor?

    I had a Dell U2415 attached to my Mac Pro via 4K HDMI KVM, and I replaced it with an ASUS PA278QV monitor with 2560 x 1440 resolution. However, I only get the resolutions of the Dell U2415, for the Mac misidentifies this new monitor as the old Dell. How can I fix this?

    Loose HDMI port on new MacBook Pro 14"

    I've noticed from recent usage that the HDMI port on the new MacBook Pro 14" 2021 is really loose with a cable in it. I mean even a gentle push or a curved cable will disconnect it when moving the Mac even slightly, since it angles. Then to pull it out of the port it requires close to 0 pull...

    Macbook Pro M1 Pro hdmi issue with (older) external monitor (green-ish tint)

    I got recently new MBP M1. The device is great but upon connecting it to my external display (old Gateway FHD2400, 24", 1920x1200) the picture is illegible (looks like it's out of phase, pixelated and with green-ish tint). The same monitor works great with my previous MBP (15" early 2013...

    MBP M1 Pro/Max, HDMI and Prores capture

    Yes, the new MBP are amazing powerhouses. While the choice of HDMI 2.0 instead of 2.1 have caused some discussion, it feels there is an even bigger “missed” opportunity by Apple to provide massive value to a large part of their customers at low to no added cost. At least I can‘t find any...

    stuttering image with apple tv on external monitor via hdmi

    So yesterday I connected my 4K TV to my MBP via the HDMI Port to watch apple TV. But it's kinda unwatchable because the image begins to stutter every 30 seconds or so for 1-2 seconds, which is super annoying. Anyone got any clue why this could be? Image quality was flawless otherwise. This was...
