OT – iMac G5 external monitor firmware hack

Hello out there in max land

i was wondering if anyone has experience with hacking the firmware on an iMac G5 to allow the DVI out to actually be a second monitor rather than only mirroring the primary monitor.

obviously this would make that machine much more viable as a performance rig for video work…

just looking for someone who had ‘gone before’

Hi Jamie

a friend of mine used the software available at

and it seems to work perfectly. He uses the machine regularly in performances.
