    I recently bought a Kanex iAdapt so I can use my TV as a secondary display. It works but there are a few annoying problems.

    1) When I set the display output to any of the available resolutions (480p.720P.1080i) the picture is displayed - however the edges are cut off resulting in about 5 % of the picture being lost. this means that the taskbar on my mac is barely visible.Any ideas on why this is happening and how i can get it fixed?

    2)This is more of a general question. A lot of the text that is displayed is blurry around the edges on all settings. Is this always the case for using TV's for secondary monitors?

    This is my setup:

    Supports Mini DisplayPort 1.1a input, USB 2.0 input
    Supports HDMI video resolution up to 1080p
    Supports HDMI 225mhz/2.25Gbps per channel (6.75Gbps all channel) bandwidth

    I have a unibody macbook from summer 2009.

    My TV is a sony bravia 32" from the KDL range. (KDL 32S3000)


    Thanks in advance

    This is a question worth asking Kanex.

    Vendors don't get to use the MacRumors forums for customer service but the people at Kanex are ready to help you if you contact them at
