I have just run through the first (of no doubt many) calibrations.
I used Win 7 64 bit, my i1Display2, with HCFR version 18.104.22.168 installed to
C:\\Program Files (x86)\\HCFR Calibration
(without overwriting the old 2.1 installation at C:\\Program Files (x86)\\ColorHCFR).
I followed the driver instructions at http://sourceforge.net/p/hcfr/wiki/D...0Instructions/
I quickly checked and I was getting some measurements on the meter.
I then decided to open up an old file that the 2.1 software had generated, to duplicate the text comments. It looks like backward compatibility is not working see error unexpected file format, and refusal to open old files.
I then started the older version of the software to check the file, and it opened OK. I then started to get a couple of errors, when reverting back to new HCFR. See attached.
I cleared these by exiting both HCFR programs, and starting again.
I have since checked the log and it says
Argyll Error - Opening USB port 'usb:/bus0/dev1/ (GretagMacbeth i1 Display)' config 1 failed (Access denied (insufficient permissions)) (Permissions ?)
All looked good after this, and I went and did a before capture of my Pioneer Kuro with the new software (set as LCD), results attached.
I have not made any changes based on these readings, as I ran out of time. I cannot easily compare my last calibration to these readings and my meter is limited to a delta of 4 anyway. I would have left the previous calibration with readings of delta lower than 4 though. But, within these limitations, it went very well.
I also got an error of Attempted an unsupported operation when accessing menu Help> About HCFR.
But all looking good to me.
A couple of questions though,(i)
How much do Plasmas drift over time?(ii)
Are the worse delta error purely down to my meter?(iii)
How much work has anyone done on Repeatability and Reproducibility of a calibration process?
