So I was talked into the new MacBook Pro Retina in place of a new Mac Pro by the guys at the Apple store.  I told them I needed to drive 4 displays and they assured me the MBPr would do that.  2 from mini display ports.  1 from HDMI and it's own display.  Fair enough.


Only, the HDMI out seems dead.  I am running two Dell monitors on the mini display to DVI connectors.  I am trying to run a 3rd Dell monitor on HDMI to Disply port but am getting no signal.  None.  Nada.  After a few seconds the monitor tells me there is no signal from the computer and it shuts down. 


I have seen a lot of other issues around the HDMI output.  Anyone know the status?  Has Apple bugged this?  Is there a fix in the works?





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