(OS X) EDID Patch Script to Force RGB Mode on External Displays:
Over the weekend a reader sent a note about another thread on EDID mods to fix washed out/color issues with some external HDMI/Displayport Monitors used with modern Macs that includes an EDID patch script. See this thread at titled Dell U2713H on Mac: forcing RGB mode instead of YCbCr. Down the thread is an update with universal EDID patch script. (I've also added this info/link to the previous page on 2012 Mac Mini HDMI display problems.)
