HP 27mq not displaying at Optimal Resolution of 2560x1440 with MacBook Pro

HP 27mq
macOS 10.14 Mojave

Hi Guys,

 

I'm just trying to get this monitor set up for my wife as an external monitor to a MacBook Pro and it's not displaying at the Optimal Resolution of 2560x1440. It's only allowing a max of 1920 x 1200. I'm connecting from the Thunderbolt port using a mini display to HMDI adaptor. I've tried this using two different Macbook Pros and the same low resolution thing happens. And yet I have an Acer monitor connected in the same way that displays at the full resolution of 2560x1440.

 

Any ideas? 

 

Many thanks in advance.

 

Mike

Just a quick follow up for those who might be interested. I replaced the MiniDisplayPort -> HDMI cable with a newer one and lo-and-behold the higher resolution  became available. 

 

So, not all cables are the same, even if they look like they should be 🙂

 

Good to get this working.

 

All the best,

Mike
