If I connect a Macbook (or any Mac) to a TV, will I be limited to the Macs resolution

    For example, on the Apple website, it says the Macbook supports a number of resolutions, but none of them are my TV's native resolution (1920x1080). Will my TV accept a lower resolution or can the Mac go up to 1080p?

    You can select 1080i or 1080p. You can't, however, type any resolution at will.
