Is there a difference in color patterns?

I've been trying out the built in color patterns in Calman and noticed how they're different than the patterns in my Accupel 5000 signal generator.

In Calman, the color patterns have a surround that's the complement color. In the Accupel, the surround is black.

Does anyone know if one is particularly more accurate than the other?

One comes out of your computer and the other one does not. Have you verified that your HDMI output from the computer is outputting reference video? What about your video card? The drivers ...

I'm still working on that part of it.
I built a PC specific for calibration with the intent of using the intel graphics from the cpu and compatible motherboard. Making progress but not quite finished.
Thought I could find a tutorial about how to get a video legal signal out of my calibration computer but haven't found it yet.

Trying to button up one detail at a time.

Jim, if you set the APL setting to 0 in CM/source/page down/APL slider, the background/surround should also be black like your Accupel.
You probably have already set the window size to what ever you like, (5%,8%,11%).

You also may want to try "Use Windows display calibration", in Color management, advanced tab, reset defaults, advanced tab.

ss

Also you may want to try this. In color management turn off "use my system settings", in advanced tab Device profile set to Rec.709 HDTV.
