Currently Being ModeratedSep 9, 2010 8:04 PM (in response to scheibenreiter)have you tried changing the resolution being sent to the mini projector?
http://www.madrau.com/indexSRX4.html will let you add new resolutions if need be.xserve, Mac OS X (10.6.3)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 10, 2010 2:29 AM (in response to TeenTitan)I tried all the possible resolutions, the display preference pane allowed me to.
I will check out SwitchResX. Thank you for the link!Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 10, 2010 4:05 AM (in response to TeenTitan)I tried SwitchResX now. Holy moly, this tool should have a big warning sign on it! I added the new resolution of 858x600px since the projector states this is his native resolution. I was not sure what to add for the frequency, so I typed in 50. I hooked up the projector, but still no signal. So I switched the resolution of the MacBook's display to 858x600, hoping this might make display synchronisation possible. What happend is, the display turned black and I had no possibility to go back. I did a restart, but as soon as the system was up, the screen turned black again.
Lucky me I had a bootable back-up, from where I could trash SwitchResX and all the settings on the internal harddisk. No blame on SwitchResX. It seems to be a handy tool, as long as you really KNOW what you do.Mac OS X (10.6.4)

Instead of using the chain Mini DVI to DVI adapter (from Apple) and a DVI to HDMI cable I bought a Mini DVI to HDMI adapter (from LMP) and a regular HDMI cable. Works perfect now!Mac OS X (10.6.4)
Currently Being ModeratedNov 2, 2010 2:19 PM (in response to scheibenreiter)Glad you solved your problem. On a slightly unrelated note, what do you think of the Acer K11?
I am thinking of getting one to watch movies and maybe do some browsing from my Mac Mini (as I currently do from my 40" inch TV. Do you think it's usable at all by day?
I am not a FULLHD home cinema maniac but just wondering if the light is good enought to be used in semi-dark.MacBook Pro & Mac Mini Intel, Mac OS X (10.5)
