Hello,

I've been wondering something,

I've connected my mac mini 2018 to a sonnet breakaway Puck RX 570 with 2 1080p viewsonic VG2249 monitors via Displayport. Is there a way to control the screen brightness and volume for the speakers through the OS? Has anyone ever tried this?

 

Thanks for the tips and help!

Very great thank you.

I just can't figure out how to make it work with 2 monitors, it seems when they're both connected, the app is only able to change contrast/brightness/volume of only one of the two.

Any idea?

Nevermind, I read on the forum this is a known issue! Sorry

You can change settings to set brightness for both simultaneously. To set brightness for other monitor, it must be the active monitor (click on it’s desktop).
