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.

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.
