    hi.

    Just bought a small LED backlit display to run dual displays on my 5,2 MacBook.

    The native resolution of the monitor is 1366x768. Using a mini-dvi to vga adapter the external screen is only displaying at 1360x768. I know its only a 6 pixel difference but it doesn't look quite right.

    Coming from a unix back ground I would manually set the resoution in the xorg.conf file. Whats the protocal for getting the right resolution in OS X?

    Usually you pick the highest resolution available in Display Preferences.

    That's what I am doing, however the maximum resolution that is showing isn't my monitors native resolution.
