I looked through and couldn't find the post I was thinking of, but I seem to recall a guide with steps to us an open source free software thing. Can anyone help me out with finding this?
I could have sworn LarryInRI had posted a document, maybe a handful of pages long, with a walk-through, but now I can't find it. However, he also listed the basic steps here: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1333561/samsung-d7000-d8000-settings-calibration-thread/1980#post_21519195
I believe info and download link for the software you're looking for is here: http://www.avsforum.com/t/1393853/fork-of-hcfr-started-whats-needed
And, in case you're not aware already: on the D7000 the 10-point controls aren't lining up at lower contrast levels. On mine they start acting up if contrast is below 90. So the 2 control may actually impact 30% and 3 may impact 40% and so on. And they can even shift two steps as well, so that for example 6 may impact 80%.
Other than that I think the D7000 series is relatively easy to calibrate.
