I've a year old 30" mac monitor & brand new Mac 3.33Ghz 6-Core Intel Xeon running OS 10.6.4 and a ATI Radeon HD5870 graphics card but can only get 1280 X 800 max resolution. upon booting Color 1.5 I get an error message saying that I need a minimum supported resolution of 1680 X 1050. I am using one of the two apple mini display outputs w/ the standard apple adaptors to run a HDMI cable to the mac monitor.
What am I missing. Surly a new mac & 1 year old Mac monitor can supply the minimum screen resolution for Apple's Color? Help, what am I doing wrong?
Thanks, Yes I am using the mini apple adapter not a dual link version you show. Guess I'll need to buy the dual link version. Thanks.
My 2nd monitor is a 30"Del which also only runs at 1280 X 800 resolution from the other connector on the ATI RAdeo HD 5870 card. Will I need a 2nd graphics card to get the 1680 X1050 display from it?
