Here is a program that I wrote to manage the display settings and to enable and activate ISF modes on the KRP monitors without patching the firmware..
This is done by switching the model information from a US version to a European or Japanese one. They all run the same firmware but the US version is crippled by a runtime check..
Anyone who runs this program is doing it at their own risk.
I have only tested it on my 600m so far but it should work on 500m's and the Elites as well..
The program requires .Net 3.5 and talks to the monitor over a LAN or a serial connection (no ISF control over the serial port currently).
After connecting it up, here are the steps needed to enable ISF:
1. Enable IP Control in the monitor and then run the program and connect to the IP address that you assigned to it. You should be able to control the tv power by clicking the power button.
2. Change the model from the US version to a European one.
3. The tv will disconnect and reset and tell you to turn the power off when it is done.. after that IP control needs to be re-enabled and the program restarted and reconnected.
5. Select the input on which you want to add the ISF modes
6. Click Start ISF to get into the calibration mode - you can see more information if you toggle the OSD button to show the monitor's onscreen display
7. Choose the ISF memory that you want to use with the ISF Mem drop down.
8. Make adjustments to your settings and the 9 point gamma.
- I am using the raw values in the up/down controls and most of they are different depending on whether or not you are in ISF mode.. In ISF mode, for most of the settings, the value 128 means zero.. In the non ISF modes, for most of them zero is mapped to 30 - this is just the way the TV works and I decided not to hide it - but maybe if I continue working on this I will change it later..
9. At this point you can load and save your settings to and from an XML file - I have attached the ones that I am currently using (I copied the 600m settings that leminhq18 posted and they look pretty good I think)
10. click Save IFS to save the settings - after that you can go back to step 7 and add the other memories.
12. click Exit IFS - now the ISF mode should be available and you should be able to switch to it with the remote or by changing the AVS drop down control.
You will see the commands that are being sent in the status window - let it run and don't worry if some of them fail - in particular, I try to get the 9 point gamma settings each time, but this only works in the ISF mode - I didn't bother writing code to check for this..
Also the color temp controls only work when the color temp setting is on Manual..
