Thanks, Zoyd. Should I input a value manually? If yes, any specific value?

I was thinking about using this software, is it relatively easy to use and accurate?

How do you get started calibrating with it, is there an introduction to HCFR or a informational help file?

Skimming through this thread, am I right in thinking that I'm best off using a combination of the AVS709 greyscale patterns for white balance and the GCD 75% saturation patterns for colours? My W905 only has 2-point white balance and no CMS anyway.

Cheers.
Why would you not want to use the GCD greyscale patterns? Have I missed something?

Is the plasma display type working in the latest version 3.1.5?

Pretty much if you go back
Maybe 10-20 threads where I started learning hcfr I asked a ton of noob questions and they were answered pretty quickly.

Thanks to those that helped that's for sure

I didn't realise GCD had greyscale patterns though I've seen them after downloading so will use them as well.

Which of the field patterns do I use for colours? And is there anything I need to set in HCFR to tell it I'm using 75% saturation patterns?

Thanks.

You can go under measures I believe and colors are in there

Ah, no worries. I thought there'd been some sort of difference flagged between the greyscale patterns in GCD and AVS.

As for 75%, go to advanced - preferences - references and change the colour space standard to HDTV REC 709 (75%)
