I have a Dual 2GHz PowerPC G5 running Mac OS 10.3.9 hooked up to my VIZIO P50 HDM Widescreen 50-in Plasma Monitor through a DVI to HDMI cable. I can see the picture on the screen and it looks very clear. The only problem is it’s a little too tall and the top menu bars get completely cut off. I need the resolution to be (1366 x 768). Unfortunately Mac does not provide me with a resolution that size. Does anyone know how I can get this monitor to fill the screen and still look sharp?

Thank you!!!

Don't think OS X 10.3.9 could give you that resolution.  Does changing the Geomentry in Display Preferences help?  Go to Apple->System Preferences->Display (Same as you do when changing resolution).  The second tab on top is the tab to change geomentry.

Hi bugsbey,

Found something that might be useful for you.  DisplayConfigX is able to do some customized resolution (http://www.3dexpress.de/).  Also have a read at this Apple Support forum (http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID=2436061)

slyong,
Thanks for the suggestions!
The second tab is Color, the first tab is Display I do not see "geomentry" anywhere.  Are you using a diffrent version than me? Also, I have been trying to get the DisplayConfigX to work but am unable to install the resolution to my system. The install button is not highlighted so I can not click on it.

It seems like only iMac has the Geometry thing.  I read a bit more and it seems that there is no way you can get that resolution with DVI-HDMI.  The only solution is to hook up VGA using analog :(.  Have a read at:

Thanks you all for your help. I decided to just get a Intel Mac Mini instead. It works great now on my plasma tv. No configuration needed.

I almost forgot... slyong was right, I did need to use the VGA because the DVI to HDMI not archiving that high resolution.
