The next step is very similar to the previous step, except that it adjust the blanking level of the green gun for the central brightness value (future edition of this guide may describe the logic behind this step). Repeat the same procedure as that described in the G2 adjustment, and click OK. It will ask you to load up a black pattern, and as you already have this pattern loaded, just click OK.
Sounds like you have limited RGB enabled somewhere in HCFR instead of full RGBWhy do the hcfr progam sometimes load the color test pattern at (016, 016, 016) instead of a full black? It drives me mad.
You can use argyllcms instructions to tweak gamma at end, as per the guide. But if you can get the gamma you desire without that step, then power to you. Lowering the black level might achieve this, and I'd try g2.The gamma at the end of the calibration is ~1.96, do I just turn down the brightness and recalibrate? Or instead of the 0.3cd value use something like 0.25? That 0.25 via btcen or g2?
automatic brightness limiter I think. A protective mechanism that switches off the monitor once the beam current exceeds a certain threshold (I believe the threshold is what the ABL value represents).There is also a value that I haven't play with, the ABL. Does it modify the brightness?
All the kudos to you and your awesome guide, it's extremely useful to learn the reason behind the wpb.That looks pretty damn sweet! Good job, you're a pioneer - I think this is the first time someone here's attempted and reported a proper calibration of a non trinitron monitor
Not sure if you found out this little detail (its not very obvious) but in FACTORY MODE you can actually hold the PLUS or MINUS button to adjust a value and it will (slowly!) be changing that value with the OSD fully hidden. Can be easily tested with BTCEN where it is more apparent. I hope you did not do the "click to +/-1, click to exit" routine for every single +/-1 value change. Thats what I was doing at first, because I thought the values didnt change while holding. Turns out they did but rather slowly (good for precise calibration I guess).My setup isn't ideal as I need to do the changes via a quite huge osd so no full screen patterns.
