Good afternooon, I have a superb monitor but Imac only recognizes a terrible resolution. Any information to improve this? Thanks in advance. Camilo
Still haven't in 2020.
What I meant to say is that I have this very problem with a Dell U3014 and a Mac Book Pro running Catalina 10.15.4 . 2 x HDMI over Thunderbolt3/USB_C --- both screens suck in YCbCr mode. Interestingly, I had it with a U2410 too and could fix it with a firmware upgrade there. Has anyone seen a FW upgrade for the 3014? /Enver
Good morning @andreas I have been using this procedure https://www.imaccanici.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=30799 for years in order to add the resolution hidpi 1920x1080 on the LG 27 EA83-D using this file on my mac mini Today I discovered your amazing script patch-edid.rb How can I mix the two different files so that I can have both RGD and hidpi relosution? Thanks
hey mate, used this for my samsung monitor for my MacBook, but somehow that override file just never gets made, any ideas?
Works perfectly, Thanks!!!! (Monitor LG 27UL850-W)
Hey guys. I've got a 2019 16" Macbook Pro and I'm try to connect my Dell Ultrasharp U2711 monitor (2560 x 1440 native resolution) with a USB-C to HDMI cable. (it's a good one 4K capable). When I hook it up the display looks very blurry. The maximum resolution available in System Preferences is 1920x1080, even under scaled, and even if I hold the option key. How do I make my Mac output a higher resolution? Dell have said that the HDMI port is passive, and the monitor doesn't limit resolution in any way. So this seems to be an Apple problem. Other people online have reported that it worked for them, with the same computer, same cable, and same monitor. No hacking. Just plug & play. I was using this monitor without issue on my previous computer, a Macbook Pro from 2014. I was using a miniDP to DP adapter + the DP cable that came with the monitor. I tried the ruby script mentioned in this topic, and it did change the color mode, but the display looks the same: fuzzy and only 1080p. Why is it so damn hard to connect a computer and a monitor together??? So frustrating.

I gave up on trying to hack things. I just bought a USB-C to DisplayPort Adapter for 20 bucks and the monitor works perfectly at 2560x1440 RGB with digital sound. And I don't have to worry about future OS updates breaking things.
USB-C to DisplayPort adapter works
I just bought a U2713H, connected it to my Macbook Pro (late 2011 with Maverick), and experienced "grungy" text.
... Thank you all for your fantastic support! Can somebody help me to copy the files into the "overrides"-folder? It does not work under BigSur, though I have admin rights. The folder "DisplayVendorID-10ac" is on my Desktop. And I want to copy it to "/System/Library/Displays/Contents/Resources/Overrides/" What do I have to type in the terminal? Regards, Markus

Maybe it works for 10.15 Catalina and before but I can’t confirm.
