    When I connect my MBP to my TV(an LG 42LBX) using a DVI-HDMI cable, I can't get a good picture using 1920x1080. It works fine on lower resolutions and the colors are perfect. But when I set it to 1080 it becomes all washed out (See picture at the end... I made it in Photoshop but that's pretty close to what I see on my TV).

    Also, it is only letting me use 1920x1080 interlaced. Why?

    Is my cable bad, or is it something with my TV or MBP?

    Here's how it looks:

    Here's what it's supposed to look like

    Try This

    Try adjusting the brightness on your MBP and on your TV. If that doesn't work, replace the HDMI cable.
