After hooking up my new RMBP to the external Dell U3011 30" monitor via "mini-displayport to displayport" cable, I'm shocked to find only YPbPr signals are coming from RMBP instead of the regular RBG when connected to its Thunderbolt/Mini-DP port.

 

This is creating problems when I try to calibrate the external monitor using X-Rite's i1DisplayPro calibrator, which just doesn't work right with YPbPr signals: colors are a bit off with oversaturated red.

 

Any workarounds to this? Someone suggested the Dual-Link DVI cable from Apple, but I've been reading Apple Store reviews that it won't work with RMBP, is this true?
