Hi All,

I am using a Mac Mini with a registered version of SwitchResX and a Samsung LA37S81BX that has a native resolution of 1,366 x 768. When I use the simplfied settngs and create a custom resolution at the size, the TV gives me a Mode Not Supported message.

Confused as to why, given this is the Native Resolution of the screen. Ive also noted some of the inbuilt resolutions (eg. 1024 x 768) are also doing this?

Any ideas?

you have a setting off. Check your refresh rate. In the NA, it's 60, EU it's 59.

I haeven't used the program in a couple years.

On a side note, did you get a picture before using SwitchRexX? I remember OSX being pretty good at detecting newer TVs. You just may need to uncheck overscan in the OSX settings. You may need to adjust something in the TV to prevernt overscan as well.
