Hi guys. Just bought this new 240 hz 46" Samsung TV and it looks great. I mostly intend to use it as a HTPC display, and for now I have a brand new Macbook Pro attached to it.


Image looks fine and I can play 1920 x 1080 video with no stuttering. The thing that is bothering me though is that I can't get the damn computer to export a video signal to the tv at more than 1920 x 1080 @ 60 hz, and I'd love to do that same resolution @ 120 or 240 hz. This Macbook Pro has a Nvidia Geforce 9600 GT video card. Anyone knows if I can accomplish this?


Also, for some reason text doesn't look near as good on the TV as it does on the notebook's LCD screen... I find that hard to understand, considering this tv is also a damn LCD spec'ed at 1920 x 1080 / 240 hz.


Any thought on these matters will be greatly appreciated... Thanks!

No, no, no, won't work. Tv's are NOT multisync monitors, they can only accept resolutions that are consumer electronics standards like 720p/60, 1080i/60, or 1080p/24Hz. Verify in the Tv's user manual compatible resolutions for each type of input. If you are playing bluray most people get best results using 24Hz. The Tv has a scaler that converts everything you feed it to "120Hz/240Hz" (if you turn that feature on).
