Mac Pro :: 2009 Nehalem, 2 23" ACD System Preferences Color Only Adjusts One Monitors Color

Jan 19, 2010

I have an 09 Mac Pro Nehalem, with nvida gt120 graphics card running 10.6.2 with the latest mac pro 1.4 efi and two 23 inch Apple cinema displays (the older DVI kind)

I go into system preferences>displays>color and try to adjust color on my monitors but selecting different color settings on either monitor only affects ONE monitor, the other monitor is essentially stuck at whatever color setting it is set to.

Hardware :: Color Calibrating Monitor Using Color Meter - How To Use Color Meter And Save Color Profile

Feb 20, 2009

before switching to Mac, I used an "X-Rite Eye One Display 2" color meter device with software. You can find them most places like Amazon for about $150. The device should still work, but I can't find any software for it for the Mac. After going to the X-Rite web site, I could find no software at all for the Mac as it is only windows based.

Surely someone out there has used a color meter such as this one as they are quite popular especially for graphics artists that use professional graphic monitors. I am hoping someone can tell me how to use my color meter (USB), what software for Mac Leopard I need and how to save the color profile in the Mac OS.

First post here but a long-time reader. Just noticed something that reminds me of win XP like 7 years ago. Images in Preview and Safari have a completely different colorcast than in Photoshop. AKA system is showing colors way off. Any ideas ? This bug has been verified so far in two different systems with CS3 and CS4 and it is very real. I'm using calibrated monitor with a profile of 2.2 gamma.

Mac Pro :: Multi Color Single Pixel Lines - System Crashing

Jun 17, 2010

I keep seeing these weird multi-color single pixel lines across my windows and my system is crashing alot (rather it becomes completely frozen and non-responsive).

I'm still getting these lines with a fresh OS install, so I'm thinking my original video card is on the way out. Will replacing it with actually improve performance?

OS X :: Hidden SL Finder Preferences - "X-Ray" Folders - Change CoverFlow BG Color And More

Sep 11, 2009

To set any of these, go to terminal and enter in the code for whichever preference you want to set. Remember, to reset the setting to its default value, just change the "1" at the end to a "0" (or vice versa). Enable "X-Raying" Folders with QuickLook This one is pretty cool. It lets you show the contents of folders when QuickLooking them.

defaults write QLEnableXRayFolders 1

I compared my color to my friend's iMac and I noticed his colors were more bright and deep. Is there any way I can upload another color profile and make it look better?

MacBook Pro :: System Freezes Playing Videos / Weird Color Bars On Video Screen

Apr 29, 2010

Ok, I've noticed this week that my 2010 13" MBP hangs a lot when it plays any videos I've bought off of itunes (it's fine with other videos). I mean anytime a itunes video pops up on my itunes player, the whole computer hangs (beachball of death and can't do anything). And it hangs for quite a bit (haven't timed it but a minute maybe?)

At first I thought it was the graphics card as the first time I realized what was causing my computer to randomly freeze up (it's been starting to do that this week but at first wasn't sure what cause itunes was in the background) it gave the wierd color bars on the video screen for the video it was playing (I have itunes play the video in the small box on the left bottom corner). Like the whole video screen was random fubar color bars and not the video (it took a minute and then eventually played fine after me reclicking the video). It has not done that since.

I played around with it and noticed it seems fine when I play videos I have not bought off of itunes but it reliabley hangs the whole computer when I try to play a video bought off of itunes. It eventually plays but it is really annoying particularly cause it holds up my whole computer until it resolves whatever issue it is.

So, hardware or software and any suggestions if it is software on how to fix it?

Windows On Mac :: How Do I Get My LCD Color Profile Over To XP

May 8, 2008

I installed XP through Boot Camp and the default color profile used just looks like crap. It's really washed out with dull colors and nothing like it is with Leopard loaded. What's the best way to fix that outside of using a monitor calibrator? I tried grabbing some pre-made color profiles off here to use since some of them had a Windows version with the Mac but I went into the color profiles tab in Windows to try and install the profile and when I selected to use it it didn't seem to change anything. I've never changed the LCD color profile in Windows before. Can anyone tell me how you did it?

OS X :: Color Profiles Keep Switching?

Mar 23, 2009

Every now and then (every few days maybe), my macbook's display profile will switch from my good-looking calibrated profile to one of the really bad looking color profiles (which gives everything a nasty purple tint). This usually happens when the display is woken up, or when I switch from a fullscreen game back to the desktop.

When it does it, I can switch it back by going to system preferences > display > color and clicking the color profile I normally use, but having to do this is getting annoying.

OS X :: MBP External Monitor Color - DVI To VGA

Apr 5, 2009

Macbook Pro last years model. I use external monitors alot for video DJing. I normally go DVI to VGA using the adaptor that came with the MBP. The other night I tried a different adaptor- DVI to composite. Now when I go back to the DVI to VGA my external screens have a yellow green tinge to them. I bought a new DVI to VGA adaptor and that didnt help. I calibrated the color profile, detected displays. and still the external screens are a yellow green color. You can still see whatever Im playing but there is definately something wrong with the color.

OS X :: Double Color Profiles?

Jul 19, 2009

I was trying different profiles for my external monitor (make and model in signature) and I noticed there were 2 identical profiles for Adobe RGB 1998 and sRGB 2.1.

I attached a screenshot of the system preference pane that shows up on my external display when I go to Displays.

Does it have to do with my external being attached? Maybe the main LCD has one of each profiles and the external display has another set?
