Unfortunately, my DVR backlog is probably going to keep me busy past the end of the season. I'll be lucky to find time to do a regular calibration, but I will check to see if using the black cap will work ... I suspect it will either work or it will throw an error.

To be honest, I'd just as soon use the i1Pro to profile something that doesn't need the periodic dark calibrations, but I haven't gotten that far ...

Did I read somewhere that the Pro2 actually has the tile attached to the meter, or am I hallucinating again?

No, it's not attached.

For i1PRO1 the original base plate was required for reflectance measurements, or for running the X-Rite Diagnistics Software, but for emissive measurements, only an opaque surface that don't let light through was required.

Now i1PRO2 features a Built-in wavelength calibration technology and it's using the white tile to automatically self diagnose and correct for small shifts doing a mechanical alignment (of the 41 10nm increments binned from 128 sensors) based on that white's tile reflectance reading.

that's what I remember reading a while back

Thanks for clearing that up. Upon further reflection, I believe it's the ColorMunki spectro that has the target built in.

Would you happen to know if the self calibration is internal to the i1pro2 or does it rely on either drivers or code in the user software. In other words, if used in legacy mode, you don't get the benefit of this self calibration.

You loose the mechanical alignment using Legacy Drivers.
