I imagine this is a wording thing, there is a difference between benig able to "watch HD movies" and "watch movies in HD". The iPad can take a HD source, and scale it to display. Commonly (although not officially) HD modes can be denoted by their number of scan lines (720p = 720 progressive, or non-interlaced, horizontal rows of pixels), and in this case ...

Finally I found this. Looks like the default EDID configuration for Dell displays is not quite right. On that post there's also a ruby script that suposedly generates the right file for your display, but it ended up screwing even more my resolution. I downloaded the file from the first post, and after copying it to /System/Library/Displays/Overrides and ...

I had the same issue, but resetting the PRAM solved it. Procedure from here: Resetting NVRAM / PRAM Shut down your Mac. Locate the following keys on the keyboard: Command (⌘), Option, P, and R. You will need to hold these keys down simultaneously in step 4. Turn on the computer. Press and hold the Command-Option-P-R keys before the gray screen appears. ...

I can address your first question. You can't export into a custom resolution. For that, you need Final Cut Pro X and Compressor. See this blog post for a description of the process. (Apple's) suggestion was to edit your video using standard video formats in FCP X, then export it to Compressor and use the Geometry tab in Compressor to create the final ...

I have a MacBook pro 15" retina and a Seiki 4k monitor. The monitor works great at 2160x3840 with HDMI plugged into the MacBook HDMI port. I bought an ACCELL Minidisplayport to HDMI adapter (Accell says it works @4K and is compliant with HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort 1.2 high bit rate). I can only get 1080x1920.

Your TV has native resolution 1366x768 on 32", so it si normal it all looks big. This resolution is used on notebooks with 11-15" screens with elements size purposed for these small displays. When you enforce full HD (1920x1080), your TV will recalculate received data from your computer (1920x1080) to native resolution (1366x768), so elements retain their ...

The videos remain sharp on the retina display because they're scaled down to half their original size (a 720p video is 1280x720, but displayed at 640x360 on YouTube). Images on webpages are usually blurry because in order to display at the same physical size as on a non-retina display, they have to be scaled up 2x (unless the website provides 2x source ...

According to this page on EveryMac.com the resolutions you want to run should be supported. The problem might be the adaptor. I would try a PRAM reset (restart while holding down Command-Option-P-R), or possibly an SMC reset, detailed in Apple's Support system. If these don't work, I'd try a different adaptor. Good Luck.

Yes, I can confirm to you they are exact the same. Photo's are exact the same format and file-size. You can also verify this yourself by connecting your iPhone to your PC using the USB cable and get one picture from it. Check the size, resolution and format. Now open your Photostream and do exact the same.

It depends of what you mean by "will look the same". It looks the same only in the way that the elements on your screen are displayed in the same size as if it was a 1280x800 screen. The aim of the retina displays is to display more details, to do that, what it does is that it displays things at the same size a half resolution screen would have done but ...

Well none of this worked for me. This is what I did before I found the issue. After the computer would come back on after sleep (macbook pro mavericks, screaming computer with 8gigs ram, retina) the right side monitor, out of the 2 monitors I have plugged in by VGA->DVI, continued to be reset from 1600x900 to 800x600. I would: Unplug the DVI port from ...

By selecting the far-right setting for resolution within System Preferences, you are seemingly increasing the screen resolution to a value greater than 2880x1800. This is exactly why you are seeing an image with greater dimensions. What the display settings allow you to do is scale resolutions so words and images all appear larger or smaller on the display ...

Technically, it would be possible. But apple doesn't offer an upgrade price, so you're only option is buying the screen for the rather high "stock" price. Selling yours on ebay and getting a model you want is probably cheaper

I don't know if this is the answer you are looking for, but I have a 2013 13" Macbook Pro with 2 1920 x 1080 monitors attached. I'm running the newest version of Mavericks and windows 7. At first when I was in unity, all my windows were huge and I couldn't figure out why. I tried to change the resolution of windows but that messed everything up and I had to ...

According to Microsoft, they've supported Retina Display since version 14.2.4. If you are using an older version of Office 2011, then you should upgrade.

You can get full resolution with mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort or mini DisplayPort to Dual-link DVI. Dual-link DVI supports up to 2560x1600 pixels resolution. DisplayPort supports that resolution or even higher. You will not get full resolution with mini DisplayPort to DVI. DVI is limited to 1920x1200 or something similar. You usually won't get full ...

I don't think an ordinary DVI connection would be enough to reach a 2560x1440 resolution. For that you'd need a dual-link DVI connection, and in your case a mini-DisplayPort to dual-link DVI converter like this one. It costs $99, but you could probably get a generic Chinese clone on DealExtreme or eBay for much less. I can't speak for the mini-DisplayPort to ...

I have a solution that worked for me. Running MBP retina 15" early 2013 with Dell u2713hm. This solved the problem: http://embdev.net/attachment/167830/U2713H_U2713HM_Mac_EDID_override.zip The problem can be solved by overriding the EDID data of the display (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_display_identification_data) in order to tell OS X that ...

I'm using VMWare Fusion 5.0.3. With vmwaretools installed, it's very easy to change the resolution on the Windows VM: go to Virtual Machine > Settings > Display there is a checkbox Use full resolution for Retina display uncheck it and the vm changes back to normal resolution.

Every monitor does better in its native resolution (yours is 2560x1600). That's because the monitor always "adjusts" (scales the pixels) from the resolution you set to its "native". For the best clarity you must set the resolution of your system to 2560x1600.

The only way to solve this is to get a TV with 1920x1080 resolution. What you are seeing in the top picture is the your Mac outputting to the native resolution of the TV - which is a resolution usually reserved for screens 11-13" in size. What you are seeing in the image below is what happens when you show a 1920x1080 image scaled on a TV with only ...

If you are talking about the non-Retina version, then the highest it can go is 2560 x 1600 pixels for one display. (Source (under "Graphics and Video Support")). If you are talking about the Retina version, then it can also go up to 2560 x 1600 pixels, but up to two displays. (Source (under "Graphics and Video Support")) Conclusion: you should still be ...

Have you shot any of those images with the "other" camera? The "face time" camera will only shoot a resolution of 640x480 and the "regular" camera shoots the higher resolution (5MP). Apple specs of the iPhone 4 states the face time camera shoots VGA (see http://support.apple.com/kb/sp587). The high res camera shoots frontward. The face time camera shoots ...

There is definitely a difference in screen touch sensitivity between the iPad Retina and the iPad 2. The former has a harder feel and is less sensitive to the touch. I still prefer using my iPhone 5 for everything even though the screen is smaller, the feel is so much better and way user friendly / faster on the touch. As for stylus: the best for your iPad ...

I use xScope for my usability and design needs. It's a paid product, and it does much, much more than simply measuring windows. However, the tools for adding rulers to the screen and measuring windows are highly evolved and packed with many features if you do this measurement regularly.

You could also run something like these scripts in AppleScript Editor: tell application "System Events" to tell process "iTunes" size of window 1 end tell tell application "iTunes" to set b to bounds of window 1 {(item 3 of b) - (item 1 of b), (item 4 of b) - (item 2 of b)}

In order to access Mac OS interface from another screen, go to System Preferences > Displays > Arrangement and take a look at the blue rectangles that represent the screens you currently have connected. One of them should have a white bar at the top, drag this bar to the screen that you want to access the OS interface from. That way you can keep the higher ...

I am using VMWare Fusion 5.x on MAcBook Retina 13' and as a workaround, I have created a .bat file (auto executable) to automate the commands as suggested by Michiel on my Windows and I just double-click it to bring back my preferred resolution. ResetResultion.bat file has the following content: "C:\Program Files\VMware\VMware ...
