    Hey guys. Was wondering if anyone else if having this same problem.

    I have the Logitech Anywhere MX wireless mouse. When I connect my external monitor to the macbook, the mouse becomes very spotty and the cursor only starts running smoothly when I have it right next to the laptop.

    The problem SOMETIMES goes away when i connect the mouse to the left USB. But I was just curious if anyone else had this same problem with the HDMI messing up their wireless signal when they connected it.

    Tried put putting tin foil around the hdmi cable? Might make a difference, even partially covering it.

    LOL, I put aluminum foil around the hdmi, and yea, it did help the alleviate the interference. But that does suck to have to do that (aesthetically speaking).

    Is it a cheap (low-quality) HDMI cable? Try a different one then. A shielded cable aught to emit less interference.
