Thanks for taking the time to post when you've got a new projector to play with!
(I'm hoping for word that mine is coming today as "scheduled" but hardly holding my breath on that).
Sorry I should have been more specific but at 3am I wasn't exactly "fresh".
I put the quasi-washed out (I think its a gamma problem IMO with not setting 16/235 correctly prior to starting CPure cal… you know what happens when you paint on a poor canvas!
), on output 1A on the mini for the auto cal 125 I did under USER1 setting (Low lamp/0 iris/DI=Manual), but when on THX (which looked inky black!), I set the Mini to 2A to ensure it didn't use the Autocal settings.
Geof brings up a good point so I think as you rightfully stated… could be a "hasty calibration"… maybe as i said last night… I shouldn't have even posted until I knew what I was doing in relation to all the new settings I'm uncomfortable with at this point.
EDIT… Oh and I did switch clear black on & off but couldn't discern a quantifiable difference at this point (but again I only had 3 hours to decide).Edited by krichter1 - 12/27/13 at 8:53am
