    What are you using to convert from DVI to HDMI? It could simply be a converter that isn’t working properly.

    To convert from DVI to HDMI I’m using a Monster DVI-male HDMI-female junction attached to the DVI out on my macbook pro. The video connection appears to be fine. The provided display calibration soft ware from Apple seems to be the week link. Any suggestions to calibrate, or just max on my own the color quality; for as less “$” as posable

    Thank You

      I’m not convinced it isn’t the cable. There can be a lot of variety in these kinds of cables. If the colors are way off, then the cable could simply not be translating the DVI to HDMI correctly. I don’t think calibration will fix it.
      Of course, it may be that no simple cable will do this. I just got a Matrox MX02 mini video card and one of the things it does is to output HDMI from a Mac Pro (or MacBook Pro). If this could be done with a simple cable, I don’t know why they would tout that as a feature.
