BeamSync, How could i know if it is enabled? What is that ?

Recommended Posts

Is there a way to see if BeamSync is enabled on my osx ?

I´m wiht oxs 10.4.7 Jas

 

Beam Sync is already disabled wiht this version ?

What kind of trouble may i have, disabling it?

What is the best method ?

 

But clearly, I would like to see the status of this

if it is enabled or disabled.

 

Everything is ok with my intel gma900 graphic card.

 

Thanks man

Go to Terminal in the Utilities folder and type:

 

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver Compositor -dict deferredUpdates 0

 

That will disable Beamsync

I just paste your code on terminal an my bean sync was disabled!

 

I Ran xbench and it increase the overall result from 68 to 85 !!!!!!

 

But just it

I don t feel any change performance in my usual use of applications.

And i can feel my eyes tearing, it seems that bean sync helps a lot my miope eyes.

 

Please, how could I turn on again bean sync via terminal ?

Just to test it after .....

 

Very Thanks man!!!

It is best used on an LCD monitor not a CRT.

 

To turn it back on, just use the same command, but change the 0 to a 1

Thanks for the patience

Well i used the command

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver Compositor -dict deferredUpdates 1

 

to turn on back again bean sync, but it does not work.

Im still feeling the tearing , and my xbench are up to 87

 

before i ran

sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver Compositor -dict deferredUpdates 0

 

xbench was at 65.

 

If you could help me again, will be greatful

Thanks Rammjet

The values are:

 

0 = disable beamsync

1 = Auto beamsync

2 = force beamsync

 

To check your current setting, run this in Terminal:

 

defaults read /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver Compositor -dict deferredUpdates

 

It will give you the value of "deferredUpdates"
