  • How do i connect three external monitors to a macbook pro?

    How do I connect three extrenal monitors to my Macbook Pro?

    I have a USB to DVI adapter from kensington. I use to use it to power at 14" display.Moving windows around had some tearing and lag. Typing lagged, but it was use-able. It was fine for displaying diffrent stats. The OS treated it as it would any additional display.
    But I found it undesirable for any thing tha requires lots dragging and clicking.
    Every so often the device would lock up. At witch point the computer would get stuck trying to detect the USB display. I would have to unplug the adapter, cycle the power on the adapter. And then it would be good for a couple more months.
    Also some times after a reboot, the adapter would stop working. I would have to unplug it, and login, and then plug it back in.
    Coping file to my USB 2 harddrive seemed to cause more lag to the USB to Video Adapter.

  • How do I use two external monitors with my MacBook Pro?

    I have a 21" monitor and a 20" TV capable of VGA connection, and my MacBooks model is 5,4 (late 2009), so it only has one mini display port. I have a VGA to mini display connector and use it lots. I work on multiple projects at once, and I'd like to be able to use three screens at once... any suggestions?

    Just buy the proper adapter cord, such as MiniDisplay port to HDMI for example.  Plug it in and it will be automatically recognized.  Use System Preferences > Displays to set options.
    The display can Mirror your primary desktop or Extend the Desktop.

    No, nothing will prevent the computer from going to sleep when you close its display except third-party hacks that are designed to do exactly that. I strongly advise against using any of those, as they may interfere with successful entry into clamshell mode (and they carry other downside risks as well). Just wait until the computer is asleep (with its sleep light pulsing), then press any key on the keyboard. It sounds as though your setup is working as it's designed to do.

  • I connected an external monitor to my MacBook Pro, but it doesn't open any programs. It Just sits there with a blank screen.  How do I get it to open programs and act like a monitor?

    Dear Jean:
    It sounds like you are trying to get your external monitor to act as the primary viewing screen. For example it would have your Doc, Icons, Etc. In order to make the external monitor the primary screen you have to:
    Open System Preferences.
    Choose the Displays Icon
    There will be several tabs to choose from pick Arrangement
    Drag the toolbar to desired display
    Let me know if this helps at all!

  • How do I add external monitors to my MacBook Pro?

    What is the best way to use two external monitors with my MacBook Pro (17-inch, Mid 2010) with minimal latency?

    The MacBookPro only has enough horsepower in the video card for one external monitor.
    If you want two or more, you need a MacPro.
    Or a MacBook Pro and a Remote Desktop controlled MacMini.

  • IChat disconnects when external monitor connected to Macbook Pro.

    Downloaded latest OSX patch last week (Thunderbolt patch).  Now, when connecting my HP external monitor to my Macbook Pro (2011), iChat will only stay connected for 2 to 3 minutes.  If I disconnect my external monitor, iChat will stay connected all day long.  This just started last week after loading the latest SW upgrade.  Any ideas?

    Hi,
    I am not going to be much use here.
    I don't have a computer with Thunderbolt.
    The computer I do run a second screen on is a G4 running Leopard and in the Energy Saver there is no setting for the second screen to be set independently than the main screen.
    I think it may pay to ask again in the Lion Forum Community.

  • How do I connect an external microphone to a Macbook Pro with Retina display ?

    How do I connect an external microphone to a Macbook Pro with Retina display ?
    Alternatively how do I connect an audio input at a level that would normally have gone into a 'line input' socket ?

    Plug it into the linein/headphone jack if there's just one.  It'll switch between the two modes automatically depending on what you plug into it.

  • Dual External Monitors with 15" MacBook Pro (Late 2011)

    I'm looking for suggestions for using dual external monitors with new MacBook Pro's.  The company I work for has started to puchase these for certain employees and we are looking for any good suggestions.
    It appears that the display/thunderbolt port should be able to support many devices but I have not seen any way to hook up multiple displays.  The idea is that these employees would be working with the macbook pro screen closed while in the office and use dual displays.  The only option that I can find is to use a usb device to output video to a second display.  I don't really like that because my experience with these devices is that they usally present a display lag and I know our graphic designers would never go for that.
    One employee suggested that he use the VGA adapter and then get a VGA splitter.  I'm not exacty certain that would work though. Wouldn't that just mirror the display on two screens instead of allowing an extended desktop?  Also it looks like expensive Apple displays have ports so that you can daisy chain thunderbolt devices out of those monitors but this company will not go for the cost of those displays.
    Am I missing anything?  Any suggestions would be helpful.
    Thanks!

    Look into the Matrox Dualhead2Go DP Edition. If it works with Thunderbolt Macs, it will support two identical 1920 x 1080 DVI monitors as one extended desktop. Verify with Matrox that it is Thunderbolt-compatible and will suit your purposes before ordering.

  • External monitor options For Macbook Pro(2011)

    Just curious as to what my monitor options are as a external monitor for the Macbook Pro.  I'm pretty much set on 27'' thunderbolt display but its a hefty price to swallow...
    Best buy has some good deals on there 27'' monitor but can i get the same resolution and clarity from other brands that will be eqivalent to Apple?
    I'd like to stay in the 27'' to 30'' size...
    thanks

    Any other options like Samsung, LG etc... that offer the same specs as the thunderbolt display? 
    Thanks

  • External monitor for my Macbook pro retina.

    I want to connect a external monitor to my Macbook pro retina. I'm searching for other options than Apple Thunderbolt Display. But in most products the connection is not Thunderbolt. Can I connect my Macbookpro retina to a external monitor through HDMI?
    Woull that me ok for video editing?
    Thank you!

    I don't know that, I'm afraid. I've used an external monitor a few times on my 2011 MBP and it appeared to work perfectly whether in mirrored mode or not, but I'm not able to make time lapse measurements. Many people seem to use the arrangement so I would presume it's fine for video editing, but don't take my word for it.
