    So I just got an LCD HDTV, and I got a DVI to HDMI cable to connect my early 08 MBP to it. It works fine, except for a couple things:

    1. When I use VLC or the iTunes visualizer on the TV and want to go fullscreen, it blacks out my MBP screen. This is not ideal - any way around this?

    2. When using, say, Safari, on the TV, I have very little control over the size of the window - and maximize makes it a large square instead of filling the whole screen.

    Thanks!
