    Hi I have connected my 2011 Macbook pro to a Samsung ps59d6900ds Smart TV using a thunderbolt to HDMI cable. :cool:
    The Macbook recognizes the television, but my problem is that I do not have a 1920 x 1080 option on the Samsung "monitor settings" menu. :eek:
    The highest available resolution on the television appears to be 1600 x 900. However, this television is in reality capable of a 1920 x 1080 resolution. The only available resolution which seems to look fine on the TV is the 1360 x 768 setting, but the brightness automatically gets reduced when this setting is active.
    What should I do to get the Macbook pro working correctly with my TV?

    If ur lucky, has a proper video driver for u. If they don't have it try the video chipset vendor.

    I have looked long and far, but there are no drivers to be found :(.

    Has anyone else had to connect their Macbook to a 3D Samsung plasma television?

    If so, have you achieved the maximum HD resolution the television is able to generate?

    I, so far, am having no luck.


    I know it is possible, because my Blu-Rays all play at 1920 x 1080.

    The question is, how do I do the same thing when I use the TV as a monitor?
