    I just got my MDP - DVI adapter as recommended by this forum. There are many resolutions to choose from when I hook the Macbook to the toshiba TV. Several have black bars on the side, almost all are interlaced except a 1280*720 resolution. The TVs max resolution is 720P. However, it almost looks to me like 1280*960 interlaced looks better - then there is an xxxx*1080 interlaced option which looks decent too.

    Any suggestions on which ones to avoid and which settings are theoretically preferred?

    Whatever your television supports. Its native resolution will always be the "best".

    Have a look in your TV's manual for the native resolution. Most 720p screens actually have a resolution of 1360x768 or 1366x768 unless it's a plasma then it could have a resolution of 1024x768. Like I said find out the exact resolution of your TV's panel and use that.

    Hi folks,

    I have noticed whenever I have my wifes macbook's minidisplay port plugged (ie it is near the TV) the wireless throughput goes to crap although the signal strength is still max.

    any ideas?
