Apr 27th 2008 12:36PM Hi, double question for next week.

running G5 powermac/leopard

1. Im wanting to hook up a second display, however im somewhat puzzled by the apple dvi connector, i thort there was an adapter for this that makes it into standard dvi, but i cant find one?

2. Sometimes just as the computer is powering off, it hangs than the fans continue to get louder and louder, till i have to reset it manually??

Thanks in advance!

Apr 7th 2008 3:24AM Hi, question for next week. I work at a printworks, and often we get alot of images in, that are large sizes, but low res. and normally RGB. This is useless for printing. Basically ive seen many batch convertors etc. But none that will both resize, and convert an image to CMYK! If you could help, it would be very usefull. Pls note, the CMYK bit is an important bit!

Thanks in advance

Mar 5th 2008 9:11AM i have the same kinda set up, except i have two macs running thru one monitor using vga and dvi.
What i do, is go into the system pref for displays, and set the display to mirror, this way the display is still sending info to the tv, but it will be a distorted version of whats on ur mac. hope this helps.
