    Hi,

    I have an early 2011 MacBook Pro and have just baught a Samsung ku6400 tv to use as an external display. Films play perfectly fine but the look of the os is off like the resolution is not correct images look sort of cartoony? Has anyone got any ideas how to fix this?

    Maybe a sharpness or contrast issue on your TV? I know they're set too high from the factory for my tastes.

    Check the setting on the TV. They may have a picture mode for using the TV as a monitor. Option 2 is to get a dedicated monitor.
