    I am running video to a 40" RCA 1080P television via a HDMI to DVI cable from my Macbook Pro. The laptop has a GeForce 8600M GT GPU and has the capability to run 1080P. However, when I port a video (been trying with DVD Player) the image becomes pretty distorted. Is this a limitation of my laptops GPU or something else? Thanks.

    Are all other images on the screen appearing okay? Is it just when playing dvd media? If so, try VLC or MPlayer and see if you still have a problem. It 'could' be the copy protection in Apple DVD player preventing a clear image. Try taking a screen capture from Apple DVD player and you'll see what I'm talking about.
