Thread Starter 
ok i'll try here...got no answer over at spectracal.. =/
here is a fast calib made with old Dpg1200/rgb high/1080p24....
then compared with my new Dpg2000/rgb high/1080p/24....
what might be wrong?....

1st:fast calib dpg1200:


2: check with dpg2000


tried this on my LG ld450 lcd tv..
same thing on my new epson tw9000 proj..

help!

Greetings

ARe you sure it is calling up the same patterns in both cases?

HAve you verified that RGB high is the same in both cases?

Sometimes people decide to update the FW of those WD devices against the instructions of Spectracal and that FW messes things up ... and they can't go back to the old FW

Checking a pluge pattern with both units would help. Do they look the same?

settings are 100% sure right!
the old dpg1200 i verified agains my oppo 93 direct mode...
it's something strange with dpg2000...when looking at avs video patterns....brightness/contrast...there i can see that there is a difference between high/low modes..
but running a calib with calman...(photo jpg rgb high mode) i get same results between high/low?...and compared against my dpg1200 (that i trust) i get same results as if u run the 1200 in rgb low mode (that is the wrong mode)

edit:yes i even tried manual selection of patterns just to be sure....and different fw...factory reset and so on...

Don't see that here when compared to the built-in Duo patterns.


Duo




DPG-2000

These boxes can behave very poorly if you change inputs and then back again on some displays (or if an HDMI handshake renegotiation occurs).

I'd suggest reading the primaries and switching to another HDMI input then back again and take new readings just to confirm that the luminance values aren't completely jacked.
As I understand it, its a bug in the SDK that Sigma Designs have been aware of but WD don't seem to care about from one firmware to the next.

nomatter what i try..everything leans towards theta the dpg200 doesn't switch over to rgb high properly.....for whatever reason.... =/
and yes i've tried another hdmi input...

Just to be clear, I wasn't talking about trying another HDMI input, just the mere act of switching the display to another HDMI input (or even the internal tuner) and then switching back again can have a dramatic effect on the results on some displays.

Interesting thought.. If the TV connects and auto detects before the dpg is set up, which it could as the settings are not saved when powered off, try power cycling the Display after you have set up the DPG ...
