Also posted on Whirlpool, with acknowledgement but no pathway ahead yet. https://forums.whirlpool.net.au/thread/3ly45l79 hoping the early adopters of M1 on here have found a solution.
A new Mac user after 30 years of PC. Moved for M1 n the cyber Monday 10% off deal. So far so good.
USB C to HDMI (various adapters) puts my Dell U2913WM into a washed out mode, compared to the same monitor on the MS Surface Pro. Research says this is a known issue for a decade now of Mac outputting analogue YPbPr mode instead of digital RGB to the Dell.
Found this blog that addresses a rather painful manual fix to the problem: https://www.chanhvuong.com/4403/fix-blurry-text-on-mac-using....
It doesn't work on M1 Macs. there are some workarounds posted, but on my Mac the script stops before it creates he needed file… I get the message "Is there a second screen connected" and "Can't detect external screen". this means the config style file needed to be edited to RGB isn't there.
This ability to change the screen mechanism from YPbPr mode to RGB seems so trivial and unexpected to be such a PITA in the glorified (and so far mostly true) Mac experience. Coming from a high proficiency windows user.
Any advice. Driving me insane doing video conferencing with ghoulish looking people. (Less colours means less sharp and less skin tones)
