I'm waiting to hit ~100 hours before I try any serious calibrating, although I might break out the meter soon just for fun.

I just tried this out with good results. Thank you very much for the suggestion. I did have to use +1 for brightness. Otherwise I simply could not get 68 to flash. I wonder if this is simply a...

Okay, reading up on using Arve's tool. I found a PDF that Wookii created for it. Looks fairly straight forward, except that it assumes that you've done the autocal on the projector. Snce Autocal...

Just to make sure I understand correctly, you set DL +4 and BL -1, and then zeroed out Brightness, Contrast, and Picture Tone? In other words, leave the brightness and contrast levels alone, and...

Those settings are pretty close to what I landed on for SDR (actually +2 for brightness, otherwise black is slightly crushed), but didn't seem quite right for HDR.

Using the test patterns...

It's not an immediately apparent problem. That said, I recently read a review of the RS500 that pointed out banding when CMD was enabled. It might have been Home theater Shack.

I did, and it was fine. I wish motion resolution for LCOS was better natively. It's better than my Epson, but not even close to my plasma. There's more blurring than I prefer. CMD cleared that...

Sweet Christmas, the RS520 is big and built like a tank.

Is there a primer on how to set brightness and contrast for HDR?

I actually meant RS520. Gaming performance is important to me.

But at this rate, I might be working all night. Things went really sideways yesterday.

The only reason I'm not sure it'll work is because I haven't personally tried it myself, and I don't know the brand :). If I had to put a % likelihood for it working, I'd say 75%. It's the route I...

I might still have a USB DAC at home I loan you. Let me check my closet tonight if I get a chance.

I guess I should verify - are you in the US?

At this point, I'd be guessing. I think you have to decide if a $200 risk is something you're willing to tolerate. My completely uneducated guess is that you have a 50/50 chance of it working.

If I'm not mistaken, Clear Black is a form of edge enhancement. If I had to guess, it can probably lead to extra noise and haloing in the picture. Here's a quote from a review of the X500, which is...
