Check this question out, looks like a similar question to yours. How many monitors can the new retina MacBook Pro handle and at which pixels resolutions? Also, more specifically this: How many monitors can the 13" retina MacBook Pro output to? Seems you need Thunderbolt and HDMI to do it. And if you're talking about the latest MBP 13" then you may ...

The photo must be selectable and selected for you to be able to manipulate it. If the image is locked, unlock it with ⌥⌘L.

AFAIK these display are not HDCP compliant therefore you'll have some troubles watching movies that have these protections.

I was successful in getting the 3440x1440 resolution back in Yosemite by following the instructions from a discussion on Apple's discussion page. The thread is a good read, to put the instructions in context, but the gist is as such... Disable the kext signature check sudo nvram boot-args=kext-dev-mode=1 Pull in the AppleIntelFramebufferCapri.kext from ...

I have a MacBook Pro Retina. I connected a 27" Asus Display directly to the HDMI port, and a 27" Samsung Display to the Thunderbolt port through a DVI to VGA adapter. I now have three displays stacked horizontally, with quite some nice real estate. Both external displays are 1920 x 1080 and have the Mac with Retina resolution of 2560 x 1600. You can do at ...

Wirelessly I think you'd have to use something like VNC, which is built-in to the Mac OS. Maybe see https://www.realvnc.com/products/ which I've had some success with. Alternatively, there's Apple Remote Access, but that is more for a corporate environment & is reflected in the price.

I think changing the screen resolution on the external display could help you in this case. Initially when you open up the Displays Settings from System Preferences. It would look something like this below with a limited set of display resolutions. This list of resolution is what OS X thinks is the best for your Display. When connecting an external ...

It seems that you're seeing two problems simultaneously: video corruption and a software error returned by your antivirus application. This suggests that the system has possible hardware issues. I would boot the system to the Apple Hardware Test and run diagnostics to see whether there is a hardware failure. Video corruption is often traceable to a bad GPU ...

I managed to get full 3840×2160 @30Hz on my late 2012 rMBP (intel HD4000) using just a mini-displayport to displayport cable and an app called SwitchResX. The only possible difference is that I used the AOC U2868PQU 4K display which uses MST and I think your display is only SST. Anyway Here are my custom settings, you need to reboot the machine to apply ...

What's officially "supported" and what's possible don't match. I managed to get 4K out of it at 30Hz. I took a screenshot as proof: Just a normal mini-displayport<->displayport cable was used. More details in my answer here: http://apple.stackexchange.com/a/147765/39878 or on this blog post: ...

If the cinema display unit is the 30in version, you need a converter box to change the signal out from mini-display port or thunderbolt. This is what I use for my system, but there are others out there that will convert the signal for it. ...

Depending on the model of your iMac, you can use the mini-display port as an INPUT and change the imac into monitor mode to use it as an external display. This IS compatible with any Operating System, as long as the graphics adapter can support the resolutions that the iMac can support. This feature is called Target Display Mode, and can be accessed by ...

You may try this: https://github.com/Eun/DisableMonitor It adds the missing feature to disable a monitor. Easily disable, enable or change the resolution of a monitor.

Actually, after thinking about it for a bit I decided to go with coherence mode which seems to do this in a bit different way then I wanted it (no desktops etc) but it may serve it's purpose of being able to mix MAC/Windows enough to move windows around easily.

I would suggest that you go with Trane Francks' answer to use Microsoft Remote Desktop. RDC is one of the crown jewels of Microsoft. It is so much better that VNC. I wish my Mac's and Linux systems had RDC. (Well, Linux does have X11, which is close.) Using RDC over a fast local network will feel almost like being directly on the computer. You may not even ...

thanks, this was very helpful. I couldn't find the Color LCD option either, but I clicked on the "calibrate" button on the right and clicked through the several steps of set up. It adjusted everything correctly. When I switched back to my other profile, the blue color was back, and I no longer had the Color LCD option, but I went through the same process (in ...

I recommend using software called TightVNC to achieve this, all you need to do is install TightVNC server on your PC, set-up the server, and then connect using VNC with your Mac. For more information, I suggest you visit TightVNC.com.

You cannot transmit the output of your Windows screen through an iMac display, but there is one way to work that you may find quite appealing: Microsoft Remote Desktop. MS has a remote desktop client application that is a free download from the App Store. On your Windows machine, you change System preferences in Control Panel to enable remote access. In the ...

Are you using the correct display adapter for the Cinema HD? To the best of my knowledge, you'll need the Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI Adapter: http://store.apple.com/us/product/MB571Z/A/mini-displayport-to-dual-link-dvi-adapter If you're just using the Mini DisplayPort-to-DVI adapter, that would probably explain the symptoms you're seeing.

There is a application on your Mac that allows displays color management. It is in your Utility folder called ColorSync Utility. Open it and look what profile is used currently, and what is he factory recommended profile. Here you can choose different color profiles or modify the existing ones to one that suits you.

What you want to do is adjust the color profile on your Macbook Pro to take advantage of the LG 22MP55. So you would go to System Preferences -> Displays and then choose Color and play around with the selected Display profile: to find one that suits your needs best. Or you can take it a step further by calibrating your own profile. Which can be tricky, ...

I think you refer to (as other could suggested): Clamshell mode To execute in Terminal: sudo nvram boot-args="iog=0x0" To undo in Terminal: sudo nvram -d boot-args Restart with the lid closed. After login, open the lid, the screen will be off and this "mode" won't require the adapter. Please be aware of connecting your ...

I am not a Mac expert. I had a similar problem using the display port. No picture. After a day of assuming it was my Mac, I decided it might be my monitor. I discovered that my monitor was not set to displyport; so, I was getting no picture. If you run out of options, you might try changing yur monitor's "display port" configuration and make the required ...

Same problem here. Using dell 1920x1200 monitor connected to RMBP 2013 in clamshell mode with nvidia card. If I open RMBP and check the display preferences, it shows TWO display settings, one for the built-in and one for the 1920 monitor. I can change the res. But external stays black all the way. Log out and log in again does not help. Rebooting the RMBP ...

All I can really suggest is that you purchase a Mini DisplayPort to VGA Adapter, along with a VGA cable (D-Sub cable), and use that with your MacBook Pro. (the blue socket beneath the DVI socket is the VGA socket.)
