Hi, just bought a shiny new 27" Viewsonic VP2770 monitor to plug into my Mac-Mini (mid-2011) and a bit shocked to find I can't get beyond 1920x resolution.


My fault for not checking if the HDMI connector would support that I guess.


Anyway, before I try and send it back (seems a shame as its a lovely bit of kit) is there a way to make this work via the thunderbolt port any how?


I have heard a mini-Display port cable would do it but Viewsonic's chap said that plugging one of these into the Thunderbolt port would still only give 1920x resolution? Has anyone done this in practice with a non-thunderbolt display 2560x1440 and the Mac-Mini mid-2011?


If it does work, any pointers to the right cable / adaptor?






Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.6.2)
