    I know this is a very specific question, but I am having some problems and maybe someone here has a similar setup that can help me out..

    I typically run my MBP in clamshell mode hooked to my Westinghouse 37" TV (1080p LCD). I can get it to run in 1920x1080 in the desktop fine with no problems, if I hit the info button on the TV remote it reports 1080p (even though the resolution in OSX says interlaced). Now if I run WoW, set it to 1920x1080, it runs at 1080i and looks awful. I have to run it either in windowed mode at 1680x1050, or set a custom display set in SwitchResX to get WoW running at true 1080p. The only problem with the SwitchResX fix is that I can't use Command-M to switch to windowed mode in case I want to look something up - it just crashes the game completely.

    Now, if I try to run WoW at 1080p in Win XP (bootcamp) with the exact same setup, it works with no problems whatsoever.

    Anyone have advice? Thanks

    Hey, I'm sorry nobody helped you with this, but I'm also having a very similar issue with my Westinghouse 37" TV on my new Mac Pro with 8800GT graphics card. My Mac desktop is 1920x1080 progressive, and whenever I load WoW in full screen and choose 1920x1080, I get interlaced mode and it looks terrible.

    Did you ever find out a solution to this? I'm also curious how you used SwitchResX to force 1080p, because when I try to force 1080p in SwitchResX it actually does the opposite... forces 1080i.

    Thanks for your help.

    The Mac Support Forums at Blizzard are usually pretty helpful. The mods there are really sharp.
