Had to use my Calman DPG 1200 to calibrate my old LG 55LH90 at my daughter's this weekend. Now I know why I put iScan Duos on all my main systems!
Calman 5 does control the DPG 1200 better than the Calman 4, but still retains alot of pain-in-the-butts! Must have had to recycle back to Patterns 01 numerous times, and that didn't aways work, and had to be recycled again. Click on 100IRE, it would come up 95%. Numerous times, the marker is left on 100IRE, but you then had to click on 90IRE, then re-move back up to 100 afterwards. After you're finished, now had to wait until the 1200 recycled back to Black 0%, before starting the next leg of the journey. Added about an additional 1 to 2 hours calibrating time versus the iScan Duo. (Please Note: 1200 was set to RGB High, and not Auto)
Couldn't figure out why when progressing to the Pattern requested, the 1200 would one time stop at Black 0%, then proceed. Other times on 10% or 20% Gray before proceeding - despite where it started from 0, 10, or 20, most times it did arrive at the pattern requested.
Downloaded the 5RC3 today to try later.
