I have been searching through some of the other threads and can't seem to find what I am looking for. I recently got a new MacBook and a new Samsung 46 LCD (4661) and am having a hard time getting the screen resolution just right. I have tried the apps where you can tweak your display but the one I found that works the best is only 1152x720 stretched. Is there any way to get a higher resolution on the lcd? I tried 1920x1080 but it cuts off too much with overscan on and has huge black bars when its off.

Check your Samsung manual for information about adjusting screen size. There is a setting called "Just Scan" that eliminates overscan and gets rid of the borders.

I check the manual and it says to use just scan. It also recommends that I use the DVI port. Would this help with the problem? I tried all the DVI ports and using just scan and I still get black bars.

Use "Just Scan", DVI/HDMI & check "overscan" in the Mac's display control panel & make sure you have selected the correct 1920x1080 resolution from the available list -- there may be more than one -- one being 1080i, the other 1080P -- you want 1080P.


At any rate it worked between a MacMini an a Samsung 4065 (which is essentially the same set), so it should work for you.
