I recently purchased a new MacBook Pro with Retina display. I plugged in an external monitor for the first time today and noticed that the screen looked blurry. I have seen on other forums that its a font smoothing issue but I ran that command in the terminal with no sucess. In my case its just not the font that is blurry, everything is blurry. I believe the problem is stemming from OS X detecting my external monitor as a television. Is there anything I can do to fix the issue or am I stuck waiting for Apple to update their video drivers. As a developer I like having as much screen space as possible but reading text on the secondary monitor is giving me a headache its so blurry.


My external monitor is a 24 inch Samsung with a max resolution of 1920x1080. I am connecting it via the Apple mini display port to DVI adapter.


MacBook Pro with Retina display, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
