I tried 1080p and the screen look terrible. fonts are blurry, color off and there is a black (thick about 2") around the center where the '1080p' image is. I tried overscan, and it overshoot. and the picture / text are still blurry.
Apple Store said MPB 5,2 can't drive 1080p, but spec says can it drive up to 2560x1600. Did I missed something? There is no setting on this tv for 1:1 mapping. I tried both HDMI ports, restart in various order and even tried VGA (which at 800x400 looked better than HDMI).
Can this laptop drive a full 1080p HDTV at a clear enough resolution (no fuzzy and use all pixels) like a regular LCD monitor?
I took my laptop and cable to SamsClub, and tried hooking up to 22" JVC, 22" VIzio and anew 26" Vizio with the same outcome. It will not have a full screen 1080, and the display preferences doesn't show 1920x1080 as a setting and the 1080p setting look like crap.
So. Can I do this setup? what TV would work or what options have you all have?
