I'm making an assumption that my new meter is reasonably accurate having managed to perform a good greyscale adjustment starting from the 'warm 2' colour setting on my Sony LCD TV. However, my projector is completely off in every mode I've checked, even the ones generally regarded as close to D65 out of the box, like 'Colour 1' (it's an AE3000). I'm getting a low blue reading across the whole 0 to 100 IRE range and I'd understood that if anything I'd be short of red?
I managed to adjust 'Cinema 1' mode to a delta E of <5 between 30 and 90 IRE, but looking at Cine4home's review, their out of the box result was closer than that. I had to max out the blue contrast to achieve my result, so I'm wondering what is wrong: My sensor must be resonably accurate given my TV results ('warm 2' is generally reported as being close to D65 and my small adjustments to the RGB settings seem to support this). I have gone over the Curt Palm calibration thread and set HFCR according to the suggested preferances (in fact the same as for the LCD TV).
I realise that this sensor is not going to be as good as a $$$ one, especially at low IRE, but although I'm pleased with my TV picture, I really got the I1-LT to set up my PJ.
EDIT: I've had a suggestion on a UK forum that it might be my initial sensor calibration. Thinking about it I only did it once at the start of a 4 hour session and there may have been light from the PJ shinning at it (though I did place it onto a DVD case as recommended). I'm going to try a quick run though tonight and pay more attention to the initial sensor cal with all lights off and the PJ lens covered during the cal. When I did my TV calibration I had all the room lights off and the TV backlight off during the initial sensor cal...so maybe that is why the results were better?
