    I have my new MBP hooked up to my 37" Westinghouse 1080p TV.

    I used to play wow on my PC on this TV at 1080p no problems.

    But now when I select 1920x1080 resolution in WoW video settings from my Mac, the TV reports 1080i (interlaced) and looks horrible.

    If I quit WoW and go back to my desktop the TV reports 1080p resolution.

    How do I run it in true 1080p like I used to on my PC??

    It's an amazing display :) Bought it on sale for $1000 + S&H from Chiefvalue.com

    I have my MBP, Fios DVR, and Xbox360 hooked up to it, everything looks great. I have the 360 Harmony remote to control everything, which is a necessity IMO if you have that many things connected to it :cool:

    I just got the same display a few minutes ago from UPS. The package is massive.

    I got mine for $799 at Costco.com. I think that special deal may be over now though...

    I have the same monitor and am having the same problem. Would you mind sharing your custom resolution settings?

    Thanks!
