VGA Out (Video Mirroring)

To use an external monitor with your cr48 just plug the monitors VGA cable into the port on the left side of the laptop.
To enable or disable video mirroring hold Ctrl and press the Full Screen button.
To use both screens, plug your external monitor into the cr48 while the cr48 is completely off.  When you boot up, both the lcd and external monitor will be active.

This works best with widescreen monitors, because there’s currently no way to change the output resolution.


  1. I tried this, but it doesn't seem to work. I'm trying it with a TV that does recognize my Mac, though. If I hit shift-alt-ctrl-fullscreen, the tv seems to recognize something, but the screen on both the tv and the cr48 are black. Also I can't exit from this. Any ideas?

  2. Doesn't work for me =( I use Samsung LE46D6100 over VGA input/cable.
