Just picked up a Dell U2713HM and surprisingly, after hooking up to my Mac Pro or my MacBook Air, both running Mavericks and using the Mini DP to DP cable.....the display defaults to RGB....not YcBcR.

It does still show up as Television in Sys Info.....can't imagine that is bad though right? As long as the Dell menu says RGB?

Will the 59 Hz cause any issues?

DELL U2713HM:
Resolution: 2560 x 1440 @ 59 Hz
Pixel Depth: 32-Bit Color (ARGB8888)
Main Display: Yes
Mirror: Off
Online: Yes
Rotation: Supported
Connection Type: DisplayPort
Television: Yes

Picked up this one on Amazon:

Been working great since. It's my primary display on my Mac Pro.

I haven't run anything.....figure if it's RGB then it's good enough for me. Haven't noticed any issues with it listed as TV.

I guess I should have said I'm not running anything. I did try the hack, but didn't notice a difference. I'm pretty sure the only thing the hack does is force RGB mode.....which if the display is already in that mode, then it shouldn't make a difference.
