    Hi All

    I recently purchased a T260HD and am trying to use it as an external monitor for my MacBook Pro and as a TV, etc. Only problem is, the picture just isn't looking that good. I've tried everything, but nothing seems to work. It's especially annoying for use as a second monitor since my computer CAN run it at its native res of 1920x1200, but the picture just looks awful. Fairly pixelated and the colors are off. What's grey on my mac comes out as a stippling of grey and purple. I've fiddled with everything.

    Also, when I try to calibrate through the OS, I can't save the color profiles. Any thoughts on that?

    Thanks for the help

    I tried DVI-DVI, DVI-HDMI, and DVI-VGA. The VGA option is more customizable at least, but still not the best. I'll have to give it another shot one more time with DVI-DVI.

    erm, I'm looking for other T260HD information, but I own it and i use it as my display in my macbook and it rocks. Have you been able to properly configure it?

    Good Luck
