Re: using Hueypro monitor calibration with Imac and MB Air
In reply to Cliff Beard, Sep 7, 2011

I've had no problem with my Huey. I used it on my MacBook, but only for the external monitor (it wasn't a 'Pro' then).

I now use it on a MacMini with dual monitors, and they seem pretty much spot on here. They are not glossy screens though, so that could be a factor.

I originally read that you need to make sure no ambient light hits the screen while it's calibrating. I always darken the room while it's operating, and it seems to work OK that way. I also use a length of soft elastic just to help hold the device against the screen (I don't like the idea of pushing the suckers against the screen either).

The only issue I have is the ambient light auto adjuster always deactivates whenever I disconnect anything from USB. Unplugging and replugging in the Huey seems to reactivate it.
