    I have a Vizio 22" HD monitor and it works great at 1680x1024 but don't know how to get those settings into my Macbook.

    I have it hooked up via Mini-DVI to HDMI and the color is great, just wish I could get better settings. Seems like I am stuck with 1280x1024 else they are all interlaced and look like *****..

    Thanks.

    You can try and force a resolution with SwitchResX

    Try 1680x1050, 1366x768, or 1280x720

    Edit: Visio models seem to have this trend of not properly identifying with the MB...

    1680x1050.. That is what I meant .. Is there a .plist file I can edit to insert that screen size ?
