M1 Macs and external monitor problems

Post by ConcertinaChap »

I'm still on Intel so not a problem for me but apparently some external monitors have resolution problems when attached to M1 Macs. The Register has a long article on the problem which includes a solution. I thought I'd link to it here in case anyone hit it.

Good going CC!

I was thinking to get a big monitor for my MBAir M1 over Christmas.

I installed BetterDummy now straight away before Apple close him down...

Cheers!

:bouncy: CC as you got your iMac Pro about the same time I got mine I was wondering if you have locked down on a OS version yet? I am thinking that maybe Big Sur maybe the place to stop - would appreciate your thoughts/experience.

TBH I'm still on Mojave ... I've got Catalina lined up for install when I get around to it as I'm still staying 1 or 2 versions behind the latest. There's a couple of bits of 32-bit software I still use that I really must find replacements for.

Haven't even thought about Big Sur yet, though your thought sounds reasonable. It means I'm a little behind on Logic too, but being as most of what I do is acoustic recording the "latest and greatest" features rarely have much to say to me.
