Can i connect two monitors to my mac book pro with HDMI?

can i connect two monitors to my mac book pro with HDMI?

I retract my previous "No." If you can live with limited performance (slow refresh/choppy action video/no gaming) on the second external monitor, you could use a USB video adapter and a DVI-HDMI adapter to connect it to a USB port on your computer.
Just a note about the system information that appears below your post: iOS 4.3.3 does not run on Macs, only on iPods, iPads and iPhones. When you're posting about your MBP, it would be more useful to those responding to know which version of Mac OS X you're running. Doesn't matter for purposes of this post, but something to remember for future posts.

  • Can I connect two monitors to a Mac Mini?

    Can I connect two Monitors to a mac mini

    Yes, but how depends on what model of Mini and what kind of monitors.  Early models only had one monitor port.  Later models had a Mini-DVI port and a Mini-Displayport.  Current models have a Mini-Displayport and a HDMI port.  The Mini-DVI and Mini-Displayport can attach VGA or DVI monitors, whereas the HDMI port can't use VGA monitors.
    Beyond that, you can get Matrox's DualHead2Go or a USB->VGA or USB->DVI adapter.  The Matrox product is a bit expensive and the USB adapters are a bit to slow for games and such.  So, again, the answer is "yes", but with limitations

  • I can't add printers to my new mac book pro with retina display

    I am trying to set up my HP wireless printer to my new mac book pro with retina display.   I can't get it to work!  I have down loaded the latest driver for my printer, and when I go into the printer area and try and add the printer, nothing shows up and it won't let me even add it.   I can't seem to connect my mac directly to my printer either as I must need a different cord as there does not seem to be a port for the "phone like jack" that I could fall back on with my old Mac.    My printer prints great so I hate to just buy a new printer, but I can't get this to work.   My wireless router is located in the basement, far away from where I keep my printer so it also makes it hard to rest everything.  I even bought the blue tooth adaptor for the HP printer thinking that would solve it all, and nope!  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I have made some progress.... I can print wirelessly from my printer now, but I can't set the printer itself to be wireless.  I had to move my printer downstairs to where my router is...which is not that convient.   I printed up the page you asked about....and as expected, it says it is off line and there is no IP address.    So now I need to figure out how to make my printer itself wireless.  I did download the HP driver I needed...but I can't access it to do anything else.  It seems l like I am missing a step... or I need to hook up my computer itself to the printer to help get the printer to be wirelss, but I can't hook it up because there is no port for me to do that (no port that looks like a phone jack).  I am guessing I would need a different type of cord, but I am not sure what kind of cord that would be! Ugh!

  • I can not sync my iCal in my Mac Book Pro with other iOS5 Devices. The server responded with "507" to operation CalDAVWriteEntityQueueableOperation.

    The iCal in my Mac Book Pro does not seem to sync / push in iCloud. I can not synchronize the iCal in my iPad2. A window pops out with the message: The server responded with a "507" to operation CalDAVWriteEntityQueueableOperation.

    That may not be what you want, but it's what's going to happen if you sync it to your Mac.  You are trying to sync media to your phone from an iTunes library other than the one it is set up to sync with.
    Transfer the data from the computer you have been syncing with to the new one, then set up a new sync relationship.

    My Mac knows that it is connected to the montior...
    Open your Displays system preferences.  Is there an Arrangement tab and does it show two screens?  If no Arrangement tab then your mac does not know it has two screens.  Maybe smc and pram reset will shake it free and maybe not.  Maybe there's something wrong with the connection.  Thunderbolt plugs are similar to mini-displayport plugs so make sure the plug is pushed firmly in so that essentially all the metal part disappears inside the socket.  The plugs can be a little tricky in that you need to make sure the plug is fully seated in their socket.
    If you do see two screens in the Arrangement tab then click Detect Displays and Gather Windows to get the Displays preferences of the other monitor on to your main monitor.  Check the resolution and if there is a refresh rate check that as well.

  • Using an external hard drive to connect the camera to the Mac Book Pro

    I am about three weeks away from a 9 to 4 pin firewire cable. In the meantime, I am logging and capturing from my Canon AX HI through my external hard drive. I am not super amazed at the quality of the image, it's noisy.
    I am using HDV tapes, and I don't beleive the lighting should be causing the issue.
    Does anyone know if using the external hard drive to connect the camera to my Mac Book Pro is compromising the quality of the image? Can I expect a beautiful strong image on a lap top?
    Thanks for any help.

    There is ZERO quality loss when you capture via firewire. It is a digital transfer of files...that's it. The issue you have is that you are trying to judge the quality of your image based on what you see with your computer monitors, and that is simply the LAST thing you should be doing.
    And since this is HDV, the only way to monitor that is with an HD card or I/O device, and an HD monitor or TV. Like the Matrox MXO2 mini or AJA I/O Express mini and HDTV.

  • Can i buy mac book pro with english keyboard from dubai?

    i will visit dubai and i am planning to buy a mac book pro from there. İ wonder if i can buy this mac book pro with an English keyboard and all the manuals in English. Any help on this please?

    Actually, you can - but it is special order only - they consider it as a customized unit....You might have to wait a week or two.....
    You can check the Apple Store at the Mall of the Emirates and see if they have it in stock....
    Or, you can go to Apple's website select UAE as the country and configure it with the US keyboard and wait for delivery...
    Good luck..

    Send Apple feedback. They won't answer, but at least will know there is a problem. If enough people send feedback, it may get the problem solved sooner.
    Or you can use your Apple ID to register with this site and go the Apple BugReporter. Supposedly you will get an answer if you submit feedback.

  • Can't get WIFI on my new Mac Book Pro

    Setting up my new Mac Book Pro and on the WiFI page, I see and select my network name.  Enter password and it hangs.  Try other networks and get same result.  I have two iPads and they work fine as do other devices. I thought I maybe maxed out on my router so I disconnected two iPads from the network and the Mac still hangs after I enter the password.  I know the the PW is right cause I can reconnect my iPads.  DSL router is a Century Q1000. Does the Mac Book Pro require a different WiFi router?

    i can't find idvd on my new mac book pro? I've looked everywhere.
    A sad loss to bundled software, with, I presume, their thinking being that optical media is soon to be a thing of the past. Superdrives have been done away with in the newer MacAirs and MacBook Pros and will eventually disappear in all devices. Downloading Apps, updated, visual and audio media, etc. will all take place via wireless transfer, as with SmartPhones and Tablets. Therefore who will need a program that makes great DVDs?
    Me for one. Still have iDVD on my iLife '11 DVD and will keep it until all my Macs are no longer supported, which could be next year or next decade, who would know. So as babowa says, get a DVD while they are still available.
    Good Luck

Is there possibility that there is some faults with USB drivers in Mac book Pro! How can i reset or restart usb drivers if fault is there! What else you can suggest to try?
    Best regards,

    i did went to Samsung Support: here is the result of it:
    Isabella: Hi, thank you for contacting Samsung Technical Support. How may I help you today?
    Visitor: Hello Isabella. How are you today ?
    Isabella: I am fine. Thank you for asking.
    Isabella: Please proceed with the query.
    Visitor: I hope you can help me fix connecting issue for Galaxy S II with my Mac Book Pro late 2011. It was working till some day and now it does not recognise it when i connect phone via USB. I should note that on Windows on same machine or on my Mini Mac it works fine. so it can't be problem in wire or usb ports. Could not find answer in Apple forums and in forums they did suggest to turn here! I hope you can help me!
    Isabella: I understand that you are finding difficulties connecting device to Mac. Am I correct?
    Visitor: yes. but only to one specific Mac. as to others it connects without a problem.
    Isabella: Thank you for the details.
    Visitor: i think problem is in driver only i can't find how to manually remove from Mac
    Isabella: May I know the model number of your phone? To know the model number of the phone, please tap on Home>> Applications>> Settings>> About phone.
    Visitor: GT-I9100
    Isabella: Thank you for the model number.
    Isabella: However as you are able to connect the device to windows and Mini Mac then there is no issue with the device. This seems to be an issue with the Mac.
    Isabella: However we in Samsung US do not have the instructions on uninstalling drivers on Mac.
    Isabella: I request you to contact apple for support related to Mac.
    Visitor: Yess it is probably issue with drivers on that particular Mac. Might be you can guide me to location where Kies or phone driver is stored on mac? I then will try to manually delete is from system or replace from another machine
    Isabella: The model number you have provided is an international model and we do not have any information on the device you are referring to.
    Isabella: I would have surely provided you with the information if we had the information available with us.
    Visitor: If you don't know might be you could escalate to some higher level ?
    Isabella: It was a pleasure assisting you. Thank you for contacting Samsung Technical Support. If you have a minute, please click on the blue “X close” button to receive a transcript of your chat and fill out a brief survey to help us serve you better. Have a wonderful day!
    Chat session has been terminated by the Samsung Agent.
    So i was terminated and left without answer. But i did not expect anything else from Samsung Support..
    So might be someone of you know where drivers are located? i could try to copy them from one machine to another manualy!!!
