    I've had a root though the forum and can't find anything that relates, so I'm hoping someone can help.

    I have an early 2010 unibody MacBook Pro and i'm trying to display the screen on an HDMI screen. I've tried with a TV and a monitor, both with HDMI inputs and both capable of supporting 1080p.

    I have a Neet cables mini displayport adapter that converts to an HDMI socket. From there it's a simple HDMI cable that works fine for my PS3.

    On both screens, I get what can only be described as pixelation. The screens both look like they're struggling to cope with the resolution ( even though the display adapter shows 1080p as an option ) and the text seems blocky.

    Any suggestions are greatfully appreciated :)

    Buy a Monster cable; they are supposed to be the best cables ever!

    Ok, ok, I kid. Could be the adaptor you're using, not all are created equal. :(

    It could be, but these adapters are excellent. Maybe mine is a dodgy one ?

    I've mailed the makers to see if they've seen this issue before.

    Fair play to Neet Cables:

    They're sending a new adapter and a tested HDMI cable, to make sure it isn't their equipment that's at fault.
