Hello folks! Thanks for posting your stuff to this site and helping me to sort out my monitors (almost)
I bought a xl2720 years ago and noticed I had only the V1 firmware and it was only upgradable with the special dongle thing. Well Moving on since then, I bought another two and my latest one had the V3 firmware and the oldest two the V1. This caused the colours to be mightily out of sync! So some searching brought me to the Linux flash of the monitor and now they're all running the V5 Firmware... yay
Unfortunately the newest monitor has a different panel, the service menu shows it's a a different model. So it's a little brighter, a whole lot younger though, so I've decided to use that as the middle monitor. Considering it's plugged in via DisplayPort, and the other two are DVI, it's worked out alright really!
Which brings me to my problem. I covered the bezel on left hand side with the left hand monitor bezel, effectively halfing the distance between the screens. I've also done that on the monitor on the right. Anyone who's done that will know the USB ports on the back side of the monitor get in the way! So I've flipped the screen.
Unfortunately it leaves the bottom half of the screen rather dark. The monitor was fine the other way around! Indeed the colours display perfectly when the monitor isn't set as flipped. I remember reading something about moving the strobe settings and how 100 was the opposite to 1 or something, so I'm guessing i might have to change that to perform it's operation in reverse... or 90 deg out, or upside down, or left to right... I don't know, but I'm hoping this isn't unsolvable.
Previously I've tried to run the Blue Busters software and it always crashed Windows 10. I just left it... but now I decided to run it in Administrator Mode, and it ran fine! But sadly it tells me I don't have compatible monitors... Is that something to do with my system reporting them as ZOWIE things?
I'm waiting for your replied... Thanks for putting loads of cool monitor stuff on this site tho, you guys do a great job, loads of knowledgeable folks doing crazy things with monitors that I don't understand who have helped me get as far as I have with my screens... but I think I'm ready to improve my viewing experience with fannying about with these settings!
So to summarise...
How can i get the Blur Busters software to recognise my 'ZOWIE' Monitors?
And why is the 'bottom' of my monitor that's flipped, darker than the new top?
Thanks in advance!
