Overscan chromecast I just got a new chromecast, and when I cast a tab for it from my macbook pro there is a few inches of overscan on each side. Any troubleshooting for the chromecast says it is my tv, and I have no idea how to fix it. I tried it on another tv, an Apex brand, and it still had an overhang. Can anybody help?

SOURCE: Apex 1919 tv model brand new and stopped working

There are two caps on the power supply board that frequently go bad. The bad cap will be slightly swelled up and when you remove it and the bottom will probably be blown out. The bad cap on my supply only had a slight dome at the top to show that it was bad. The caps APEX use are 25V 1000uf. They are located where the ribbon cable plugs into the board, surrounded by a a heat sink w/ an inductor in between them. I went to Radio Shack to get a replacement. They only had the 35V 1000uf but you can still use it. Just as long as it's above 25V.

SOURCE: no hdmi sound from macbook pro to toshiba 40E210U

I was having this exact problem. You have to go to the "Audio MIDI setup" icon in the utilities folder. plugin your mac to the HDMI and TV and it should show up on the menu bar on the left as "HDMI"- then click it. then you have to click on the "format" drop down menu and change it to either 48000.0Hz or less. Make sure that the volume is down on your TV bc I almost gave myself a heart attack when I clicked it. Apparently the TV HDMI input is not compatible with the default on the Mac. Hope this helps!

How to cast iTunes movies/TV shows to Chromecast


As a movie ******, most of you will choose to purchase or rent movies and TV episodes from iTunes, one of the most popular online media stores providing hot music, movies, TV shows, etc. However, to iTunes fans' disappointment, iTunes store is not an available channel in Chromecast yet. As is well known, that's because Tunes videos with M4V format purchased and rented are encrypted by Apple's FairPlay DRM technology. In result, iTunes movies are not permitted to play on any other non-Apple devices, such as Chromecast, the most popular media streaming box. Besides, the M4V format of iTunes movies is not a compatible format with Chromecast which supports MP4 and WebM only. However, you don't need to be upset at all. Here in this post we'll introduce an easy solution for you to sync your DRM-protected iTunes videos to Chromecast for watching on HDTV sets.

Part 1. Best Tool to Strip DRM from iTunes Movies/TV Shows

First of all, we need the help of a powerful yet easy-to-use iTunes DRM removal tool with which we can easily and completely remove the DRM protection from iTunes movies and TV episodes. When it comes to a high-performance and all-featured iTunes DRM cracker that preserves 1:1 original quality of the HD movies, DRM M4V Converter for Mac could be the best choice. With this smart DRM removal application for iTunes, you can get rid of DRM protection from any iTunes videos, including the purchased and rented movies, TV shows, iTunes Extras as well as music videos without touching the original video and audio tracks. It keeps the AC3 5.1 audio, CC, audio descriptions, subtitles for the HD 1080P/720P and SD iTunes movies and convert M4V videos to MP4 and other formats supported by Chromecast. It's fully compatible with the latest iTunes as well.

Step 1. Import iTunes M4V Movie Downloads to DRmare

Launch DRmare iTunes to Chromecast Converter and click "Add" button. Then a drop-down menu will appear allowing you choose the iTunes movie content you want to stream to Chromecast from your iTunes library. Click "OK" and the videos will be loaded automatically to the converter. You are also allowed to add the iTunes M4V movies by drag-and-drop.

Step 2. Customize Output Format

To Cast iTunes movies and TV shows to Chromecast, you are suggested to choose the output format as "Lossless MP4" from the profile list. The quality of the output iTunes video will be exactly the same with the original file. All ausio tracks including the AC3 5.1 sound, AD, CC, and subtitles will be retained. Or you can choose HD MP4 which lets you customize the video parameters, including video codec, size, bit rate, frame rate, all according to your own needs.

Step 3. Start to Convert iTunes M4V Videos

Click the "Convert" button in the lower right corner to start converting the iTunes movies to Chromecast compatible MP4. After conversion, you can click the "Converted" panel to find those well converted iTunes videos before casting them to Chromecast.

Part 2. Stream DRM-free iTunes Videos to HDTV via Chromecast

Congratulations, you should have already got the DRM free iTunes videos now. In the following part, let's move to the tutorial of streaming the converted iTunes movies to Chromecast so that you can watch them on your TV.

Tools you'll need

  • Google Chromecast
  • HDTV set supports HDMI port
  • Google Cast extension for Chrome Browser on your computer
For the complete guide on casting the iTunes movies to Chromecast for watching on TV, you can follow the source page here: How to Cast iTunes Movies TV Shows to TV via Chromecast.

Will chromecast work with my dell d830 ?


Hi Michael,

You do not plug Chromecast into your laptop HDMI port, it is a video source, so you need to plug it into an HDMI port on your TV. Your TV is an HDMI target, the view side.

If you can run Chrome browser on your laptop, you can cast from your laptop to your Chromecast device and watch that frame on your TV.

Does that make sense? Have a look at the link below for more info.
Plug In Chromecast

Good luck!

MacBook Pro Want to stretch image 'full screen;' however, when I use stretch resolution, I can't see the top menu bar.


This is a fairly common problem when connecting the MacBook Pro to most Televisions.
Step 1.) Click on the Apple logo and select "System Preferences".

Step 2.) Click on the Display icon (it should be somewhere similar to the one pictured below).

Step 3.) You should get a screen that looks like this, make sure the box that says "overscan" is not checked. If it is checked, click on it to uncheck it. This should make the top menu bar visible, but it will not stretch the desktop image all the way to the sides. I hope this helps you out.

How can i remove the dvd from my mac, it is stuck. macbook pro 17 inch


A few ways of doing this

restart mac and press down the trackpad after you hear the startup noise

if that does not work try opening up disk utility and click on the icon of your disk under the left hand column then go up to eject button and click eject

or open up terminal found in the utilities folder within your applications folder and then type in
drutil tray eject and then press return

Finally what to do is try pick up your macbook tilt the macbook to the one side and ise the eject key and hopefully the effect of gravity will allow the DVD to fall out.

One other way to do it which I have used recently but IT CAN BREAK THE DVD DRIVE, so only use it as a last resort. Get a thin piece of plastic and put a piece of double sided tape on it then with the macbook switched off insert the piece of plastic with the tape facing down in relation to the keyboard. Put it in about half an inch and you may be able to drag the dvd out.

Hope this helps.
