Hi there

I recently bought a Lindy HDMI switch to connect my mac mini to two different displays - a secondary monitor and a TV, the idea being that I could change displays without having to plug/unplug any cables.

The monitors need different resolution settings - the problem is that no matter which display is in use, the mac always thinks it is connected to one of them - the SONY TV.

If the other one is in use, I can't even access the right display settings - they're not available to me

Is there any way to fix this?

Many thanks

Hi Stuart,

We normally suggest using identical displays with this switch, as non identical displays will cause some audio and video issues. The switch will only handshake with one display so that may be the issue you are experiencing.

You could try swapping the ports the TV and Monitor are connected to, but failing then I'm afraid I could only suggest returning it to the place of purchase.

Guy, thanks for the response

I see...I thought that it would 'reset' each time the display changed...shame that it doesn't...

Cheers
Stuart
