    Hi,

    Apologies for stupid question(s) in advance. I purchased this device and I was able to calibrate 4 computer displays, 1 plasma TV, 1 TV and a projector.
    All of this computers had pc/htpc connected to them and I used DisplayCAL with very good/satisfying end results to my untrained eyes. tongue.gif
    I was trying to achieve D65 (6500k temp) with 120 cd/m2 brightness.

    My first question is, what is the easiest way to calibrate TVs without PC/HTPC as source? Can I use a laptop with hdmi out and DisplayCAL installed for it setting up multiple devices?

    How do the displays work in general in regards of color space among its source inputs, i.e. TV has 4 HDMI and 1 VGA port, do I have to run calibration on each port or TV is sharing color space among all 4 HDMI and VGA port?

    I'm planning to use this device to help with my family/friends setups, but not all of them use PC as a source.

    Also in general this is the best way of doing calibration:

    1) reset your display RGB values (including any auto color features)
    2) run DisplayCAL calibrator to adjust RGB values and brightness to meet your goal
    3) run DisplayCAL to test your display

    Any help would be much appreciated :)

    Thanks in advance.
