    Hi all,

    I've installed a Mac Mini (unibody) on a friend's boat and have the display output through the HDMI port througha distribution amp to 3 TVs. I have been having resolution difficulties though.

    When the display is output this way (split three ways) the resolution does not fit the displays, and there is no means to change it to a setting where it will fit the TVs. All TVs are full-HD and 1080p. The screen expands outside of the viewable area.

    Does anyone know how I could resolve this please?

    Thanks,

    Tim

    check out the underscan slider. (in the display settings)

    look on the tv, for "just scan" option or something like that in the aspect ratio settings.

    I've got an LG tv, and by naming the input as "PC" it fixed it for me.

    All three TVs are Samsung. I'm visiting the boat yard today to try and fix the problem. I'll update with my results. Any other input would be greatly valued.

    Thanks. T

    Resolved

    Underscan was an option, but the Samsung TVs had an option for display to 'fit screen', which delivered better results. It works great now.

    Thanks for your help.
