I did this but now I can't even open the sessions I that didn't delete. However, all the sessions still show up like Ted said. 

Another simple thing also which must be fixed also... when you want to open 'Find Calibration Session'', the CalMAN does not remember the last directory path you used/had, and you have to go through all your drives/folders one by one each time you want to open a File from the same folder.

For example I have 10 saved sessions files saved to another harddrive inside to one folder and each time i want to open each file I have to locate each time that folder, going through every folder one-by-one...

Seems like CalMAN uses sqllite database for storing sessions located here :
!C:\ProgramData\SpectraCal\CalMAN 5 Home Theater\Data
file name is
"Calibrations.s3db"

Since we're on the subject or sessions and reports....

I asked this on the Spectracal forum but got no reply.
Why doesn't Calman 5 store the Meter, Source, and Processor info when you save a session?
Or am I doing something wrong?

thanks,

When I load up calman with my meter plugged in, my meter and blu-ray source show up automatically. I haven't used a DDC yet.

It's just a design decision. For everyone who wants it to work one way, some else wants it to work the other.

Right. It loads whatever meter (or simulated meter) is connected. But what if you want to compare a session done with one meter against one done with another in the past? Or print out the charts without having to connect everything.

The reports do store the hardware that was connected at the time.

Hello,
I was wondering if anyone could help me out.
I am using Calman 5 with a i1Pro meter on a 60" Kuro (no CMS, just a colour slider and a tint slider - for adjustments). I wanted to compare the colour accuracy of my "user" mode vs my "standard" mode. Both modes had been previously calibrated with the color and tint adjusted by use of the color/tint pattern on Spears & Munsil disk using the blue filters.
Yesterday I fired up Calman 5 and went to the "Quick Analysis" template and opened "Colour Checker".
When I compared both my "standard" vs "user" modes it was obvious that the user mode was the most accurate..... I had all colours with errors below 3 with the exception of green and magenta with were just over 5.
So, sticking with the "User " mode, I decide to adjust the colour and tint slider to the 0 position and re- took the readings again. NOW, I saw even better results across all colours.

Leaving the colour and tint slider at 0, I put the S&M colour and tint pattern up and decided to check the pattern again using the blue filter. Reading the colour and tint with the blue filter it was apparent that it was off by +2 on colour and Red3 on tint.

So what do I trust the S&M blue filters or Calman colour checker??

Any insight would be great.

Thanks

Paul

Calman is alot more accurate, color filters should only be used if you don't have a meter.

Thanks chunon, I have read that using the blue filters is not a very accurate way to adjust colour/tint for the most part. I just wanted to share/confirm my findings and make sure that I could leave my settings as they are now.

Thanks

Paul
