Snow Leopard Adds Support for HDTV Viewing

Posted August 31, 2009 at 1:10pm by iClarified
Mac OS X Snow Leopard adds support for 720p, 1080i, and 1080p when hooking your computer up to a HDTV.

TUAW discovered that this feature works using the DisplayPort to HDMI adapter. They were unable to duplicate it using a DVI to VGA adapter.

You can head over to System Preferences to try it out for yourself.

Wow, they finally have this feature? Isn't it suppose to be the most advanced OS in the world and to now have this feature completes the claim? WTF? Windows has been outputting 1080P for years now.
