Hi all,



Heres one for you all.


I have the above card in my hackintosh and all is ok i can play games and the like BUT theres one thing thats strange.


I have a JMB 22" lcd tv as a monitor plugged in via either the 15 pin d on the card or via a dvi to vga adapter either way i cant get a piture if i turn on the mackintoch but if i plug in the HDMI cable aswell

i get a picture with the correct res for the screen and i CAN use the HDMI aswell but i only want 1 monitor, i have tried a normal 1280x1025 19" monitor and the same result.


Question is how do/can i make the hack pic the right output an stick to it?


Oh and its Mac OS X 10.7.4 fully updated to the latest patch.


Thanks all.

yup, you can type it at boot to try it once, if it helps you can add it permanently by editing /Extra/org.chameleon.Boot.plist

start there, I haven't had a 4870 since SL and it was super easy then so don't know all the tricks for Lion, but aside from the patch, most are similar to the newer cards. 5870 I know like the back of my hand :)
