    Hey guys,

    Just got my mini displayport to hdmi converter. So i hooked up my Samsung P2470 to my macbook pro 13" 2010, but i can't put the resolution of the samsumg any higher than 1600 x 900. How can i crank it up to the full hd resolution?(which the monitor supports).

    Im not using mirroring and already tried putting the dock on to the samsung.

    Hope somebody can help because it looks like crap now.

    Thanks, it did help a bit.
    I also found displayconfigx which made it possible to turn up the resolution to full hd. Got a great extra screen now!
