I know what you mean Stanger89. :) However, I still have an old i1D2 that I bought when I first started out with calibration. It is awful though and gave an error of 12dE when compared on the sam...

The JVC autocal doesn't calibrate back to 'factory settings'; it calibrates to the meter that you use, so it can give pretty decent results depending on how good your Spyder4 is.

My Spyder4 left...

If I'm correct that the calibration is done with only a few hours on the lamp, then IMHO I'd suggest that it will be wasted after only a few tens of hours use. I really don't see the point in a...

Reading this post am I correct in assuming that you haven't actually calibrated the X500 usng it's own controls yet? Mine developed quite a droop on the gamma after only 60-70 hours which coincided...

Was there anything you could do in the X500 menu to reduce this pulsating or not? I'm wondering if the MPC being in 'Auto' might have been to blame, perhaps better to set it to 4K. Or possibly to...

That's interesting to know. I also have a Lumagen processor (recently upgraded from a faulty Mini3D to a used 2041) and by luck more than planing I have it plugged into HDMI 2.

You should also set the 100% white balance and chose a colour profile that is larger than rec709 as the Lumagen can't 'add' to the colour saturation only reduce it. Having a gamma response that is...

Anyone on here tried sending a 2160p signal into their X500? I've just received a used Lumagen 2041 which allows me to upscale 1080/24p to 2160/24p, not sure what settings this will 'grey out' on the...

There isn't a 'rec709' profile in the 'create profile' section, but in Manni's case using 'HDTV' gave him that result. From memory there are 5 settings; 4 presets and one custom.
