Problems scaling monitors.
on May 10, 2015 at 12:38:37 pm

Hi all,
I am trying to set up my two monitors on a new Mac Pro.
One monitor is fine, a Hanns G monitor, running at 1920 x 1080 @ 60 hertz.
The other is a Samsung 2232, and it won't scale properly, it's blown up and blurred.
It only gives me the option of 1280 x 1020 or 800 x 600, both not right.

It has run ok for ages on my old Mac Pro but
I have tried everything I can think of but can't line it up.

The other problem is I can't move my mouse between each monitor through the middle, it won't let me pass through the middle of both screens I have to go left from the left monitor and right from the right.

Very basic I know but any help would be very much appreciated.
Dan.

There used to be something about Macs and Avid and the default monitor layout being backwards. (i'm mostly on PC now, so my memory is a bit foggy)

I think you have to go to system preferences, display, and you can swap the orientation of the monitors around. I think you can physically drag the monitor icons from left to right to change how the computer sees them?

As for the resolution, I know you've said you have used these for a while, but it simply sounds like your second monitor doesn't support 1920 x 1080? Again, perhaps something in system prefs might help.

Glenn
