    My current setup was a 2009 Mac Mini connected to a Samsung 720p HDTV via a miniDVI-DVI + DVI-HDMI adaptor. However I need a separate audio cable and thought I could clean things up a bit in the back of my TV by getting a MDP-HDMI with USB audio cable.

    With the miniDVI adaptor, it would set to 1360x768 resolution, fill the TV screen properly and look good. But for some reason I can't get that option in display settings when I tried with the MDP cable. The closest I got was 1344x768, which looked crappy in comparison and had the top bar cut off. :( 720p didn't work either.

    Is there something I'm missing? Why won't it do 1360 if miniDVI does? I can return the cable to Monoprice, I just don't understand it.

    I'm having the same problem (doesn't show the correct resolution).

    BUMP.
