    Hello Guys

    - I just have one quick question;
    When I connect my 13" MBP to my 1080p HDTV through HDMI, I must admit that I hoped to see better quality?
    My resolution is currently 720p, because if i make it larger, everything gets so tiny.
    The overall quality is alright, but I just don't know if there should be anything, so I could improve the quality?

    Thanks,

    MrRoyksopp

    what size is your TV?

    i think 27" is the biggest external monitor you can use to get full 1080p without compramising any quality

    do you have it set up to mirror macbook, extended monitor or clamshell mode?

    also what looks blury?

    for example if your wallpaper is 1440x900 it would like great on the 13" laptop display but blurry on any external that is a higher resolution than 1440x900

    Right now it's in clamshell mode, and it's really not that sharp. Pixels are very clear, and my wallpapers are always 1080p. :)

    try on your TV

    On my samsung when i go to settings, inputs(or something do to with inputs) not at home so just going off memory, there is something that says Scan or something along those lines, but make sure you already on the source thats connected to the MBP hit this and it made sceen look better than before i hit it so that might help

    do you have a good website to get 1080p wallpapers?
