I've been using projectors and doing my own setup since 1999. I'm still not very good at it but then I'm also not trying to sell my calibration services either.
I have great tools ... i1 Pro spectro, i1d3 retail, laptop bought specifically for calibration using a hdmi output directly (un-altered display profile), HCFR.
Today I have hard to find time and I really want to get a good calibration of my current pj in it's fully light controlled room. The pj is Sony HW30ES. (And I'm only interested in calibrating 2D output.)
My goals will be to turn off all "enhancements" like motion compensation and dynamic iris and restore to defaults and then setup up Levels, GreyScale, Gamma and Gamut. I will profile the i1d3 using the i1 spectro.
So,... would anyone recommend some settings I need to get right in HCFR? Gamma?... measured black level compensation? Windows vs full screen patterns? 75% saturation patterns?, Which references for color checker? Which method for Delta E?
Edit - while I wait for suggestions, I'm going to search this thread for answers. I've been study-ing gamma options and such from the first post and seems hard to decipher. I know I only have 2 point control but for the moment I think my best bet is to leave all options at defaults unless I get suggestions otherwise.
Edit 2 => I see luxmeter mentioned in the advanced preferences tab and I bought one of those,... should I use it and input data manually?..so many options,.. I would love to write the guide but I should not since there is still so much for me to learn.
edit 3 - Death by options....There are so many and some of the preferences I read up on in the first thread end up being gone from the latest version that I'm using. I switched to Pantone color checker options just because I see that in the poster above's graphs and he looks like he's ahead of me in understanding. Plus... pantone has a nice sound to it. ...
