    Hello,
    First, thank you for posting so much useful info. about the Mac. I just found your site tonite searching through forums for an answer to this big problem I have.

    I have searched this site, but have not figured out how to post a question. So I am just doing a reply and I hope you read it. In your post above, you wrote, ” our macbook air that’s hooked up to a projector plays movies”. How did you get it to work becasue my problem is, my MacBook Air – I have it attached to my Epson projector. When I try to play a movie (using the DVD player), the movie will not project. The screen projects and where the movie should be is a white box. I have MacBook Air and projecter connected with the USB cable instead of the VGA cable. Any help you would give would be appreciated. I plan to show a movie tomorrow night at church to my youth class using this set-up and really need to get it to working.
    Thank you, God Bless,
    Jacki

      Try VLC.
      Try turning on mirroring.
      I’d try a VGA or DVI cable instead of USB.

    Hi Guys,
    This worked perfectly on my roommates mac, is there a comparable setting for PC?

    Cannot believe it’s taken me this long to track down this advice – this has made a huge difference to my TV display and I can now watch things from my Mac where I can actually see people’s faces! Thank you so very much, you’ve made my Christmas :-)

      I agree – this makes a huge difference, it’s something Apple should include as standard – a setting within iTunes perhaps…

    Wow – after so long of being frustrated and googling different ways to lighten the movies on my MacBook screen, I am so glad I found this!! I found my perfect “target gamma” is about 1.4. This needs to be on the apple forums or even just an actual special setting on the OS X Displays menu that comes as a standard option. THANK YOU!!
