Thanks

They say it does:

A mac OS X version of the colorHCFR software is now available.
This version works on mac OS 10.4 and 10.5, on intel and PPC processors.

Hi, as usual I am coming into this thread late but better late then never they say, anyways have a Front projector Sanyo Z2000 will this color HFCR work even if my screen is not a tube like???? Thinking of going the cheapest way possible so that would be the Spyder2??? Is it worth the calibration after all the download to my laptop etc?

Thanks

Ralph

Hello ,

i used the Spyder 2 with HCFR aswell , but get no good results.
Get an Eye One , and you will be happy , because at <40 ire you get no acurate results with the spyder.
And the Eye one ist much faster.
You can do the whole Greyscale in less than 15 min.
I catch an used Eye one for under 100 at ebay.

Best Karsten

I've got a geometry problem with my 960 and I could use some help.

The picture is skewed as follows: the top left corner is lower than top right corner, and lower left corner is lower than the lower right corner.

BUT the left and right sides are parallel to each other, and straight up and down.

So if I correct the skew by tilting the image clockwise, the left and right sides are no longer vertical. They are tilted.

If you imagine the image is a section of fence, and the posts are perfectly vertical, then the problem is that the left fencepost is lower than the right one. I want to lift that left post so it's the same height as the right post.

Any idea how to do this? I've checked the geometry pages of the service manual. Maybe it's some combination of service menu adjustments?

the diy colormeter on hcfr site, do they sell them? I'd do it myself if i wasn't inexperienced with soldering

i'm surprised how expensive some colormeters are when they look so cheap in make and build, the markup profit they must make on them must be high

$80 for the cheapest all the way up to $500 and they probably cost under $15 to make

I would suggest an eye one LT to start with.

everyone suggests eye one, it seems so fishy to me like they are advertising it

Its $120-$150

these Do it yourself colormeters are like $15 but i can't build one myself, if someone sold the one made by the HCFR guys for $30-$40 that would be great

the calibration business is fishy!

lower the prices of the colormeters, its ridiculous

after reading the dummy guide its not that hard for anyone to do it themselves especially with the great free software out there available to everyone

Should this free software be able to calibrate backlight settings?

No, it is not a full ISF calibration and I have heard reports of them making things worse than if you just used DVE or something similar.
