Hey Guys,

 

So i just bought a Dell u2410 screen the other day, and decided to hook it up via HDMI, It's being used for photo-editing, I tried to calibrate it, but in the sRGB mode i need to use the colours come out terrible, Reds are orange, etc. The screen itself, and it's settings arn't the problem. The problem is the Colour output of the MacBook, over HDMI and DisplayPort I've found it outputs the old YPbPr colour format, which for me is useless. if i connect it via VGA it'll output proper RGB colour format, but VGA is pretty crappy, and i ideally need to use a Digital output, I've searched all over the net for a solution, but haven't found one. one thing i did find is it will supposedly output RGB over DVI, but alas i don't have a DVI cable and do not wish to have to buy one...

 

so what i want to know, is it possible to change the output colour format for HDMI and DisplayPort to RGB instead of YPbPr?

 

Note 1: If i boot into Win7 via BootCamp it outputs RGB and has the option for YPbPr...

Note 2: It isn't the ICC colour profile that's the problem.


MacBook Pro (15-inch Late 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
