Hi,

Can anyone advise best way to view slide show on Apple 30" in Cinema Display attached to 17" MacBook Pro.
I am having difficult time aligning the "slides". I seem to get part of previous frame to the left as well as aghost image of the top of the contact sheet at the bottom. Could I be using the "wrong" resolution? I have the displays mirrored.

Many thanks,
Ted

When mirrored, what resolution does the 30" display have?  Does it end up having the same resolution as the MacBook Pro's built-in screen?

I don't have hardware like that at my disposal, so your configuration has never been tested.

Thanks very much Kirk. I modified the MacBook Pro resolution and now all works perfectly.
