It takes the measurements more quickly but it takes 10x longer to transfer the results after each measurement to the PC.
I'll post my result graphs later.
As far as memory serves, you have a 4311, so I suppose you are using the USB-Serial converter provided with the Pro kit.
Now with your new 3.5 cal, did you use the new driver (1.5) provided by Prolific through the Audyssey link, or did you use the previous driver?
Actually last Saturday, I wanted to change some parameters in my 4311 and I (stupidly) thought that switching to 3.5 and the new 1.5 driver would be fine. It wasn't!
I have a Win 7 (64bits) Pro configuration and after installing 3.5 and the (new) 1.5 diver , the 3.5 software starts, after selection of the 4311, the COM port identification arrives, the 4311 switches to Audyssey Calibration mode, but then 3.5 shuts down by itself...
I tried several times and at one time I had a "time out" (too long time to establish communication) warning.
So I'm wondering if your "long" time for transferring data, wouldn't be something of the same kind as the "time out" I have encountered.
Now I won't have time to try another cal in the next few days, but my humble opinion is that people who haven't installed 3.5 and the new driver, should remain with their previous and initial 3.4 contexts.
