    WinDAS White Point Balance guide for Sony Trinitron CRTs

    I'd try a clean driver installation, and make sure you're using the argyll drivers when you install the drivers. These are windows 7 instructions, and the procedure may well work for windows 10: https://www.argyllcms.com/doc/Installing_MSWindows.html#WINV7

    try dispcal -v 3 -R while the instrument is in place, and let me know what happens.

    what message do you get when you do the dispcal command? The process should take quite a while to complete, and will render several color patches.

    Yea dispcal has evolved since the guide was created, and I'm unable to edit the original post: Try this: dispcal -m -qm -F -G2.4 -f0 (not sure if this is ideal, but I'm basing it on this post...

    Don't think it really makes a diff, but to go by the book probably use a white screen.

    Just go for consistency in placement, and ensure monitor has had an hour or so to warm up.

    Make sure that when you're doing your grayscale testing in HCFR after argyll step that you are asking HCFR to use video lut (might be termed gamma ramp or something) when doing it. Else it won't test the monitor with the argyll lut that you just created.

    if you get the i1d3, this issue should sort itself out, but glad you got the monitor to a good place.

    hmm, been a long time since I've used DTP-94. This may be relevant: https://www.freelists.org/post/argyllcms/With-latest-rev-of-ArgyllCMS-DTP94-driver-not-loading,2 (graeme gill is the creator of Argyll - he's a fairly accessible person so if you post on the argyllcms mailing list you'll...

    WinDAS White Point Balance guide for Sony Trinitron CRTs

    Argyll CMS has drivers that should work - if you're interested in using Xrite/Calibrate software, then I don't think you'll be able to do so with OEM version. But if you're just interested in using Argyll, HCFR, or DisplayCAL (which I believe all use Argyll as the back end), then you'll be fine...

    WinDAS White Point Balance guide for Sony Trinitron CRTs

    Yea you might be right - I missed that nuance - that the colorchecker seems to come in pro and non pro versions. And yes, I think the firmware limitation is between pro and non pro models (regardless of branding) - but not 100% sure. I also think Argyll will work with any version (no matter the...

    Read this: https://hub.displaycal.net/forums/topic/is-it-wise-to-buy-x-rite-i1-display-pro-plus-now-in-2022/#post-35082 I believe the colorchecker display will work with argyll, but will be 4-5 times slower This might be what you want (but not sure, do your research)...

    Nice, DTP-94 is good, but if you want more precision with black levels, the i1d3 will serve you better. without colorimeter... I suppose theoretically you could match chromaticity of the screen with a physical reference patch, but I think you'd need standard illumination to render the patch...

    Hey gamuted, glad you came across the guide :) 1) No experience with the ColorChecker series - but it looks like the same piece of hardware. I haven't kept up with the latest branding and iterations of the colorimeter, and not sure whether it's better to get OEM or not. 2) Not sure about the...
