) and that doesn't match any type in HCFR.
The TV should have a wide color gamut (called "Dynamic Crystal Colour" by Samsung). What's also complicating the matter is that it seems like Samsung ships this TV with both a VA and an IPS panel. I think that mine is an IPS.
Anyone an idea which display type would be the correct one?

I've been using "Non-refresh" to this point, is that correct?
While the i1Display PRO/ColorMunki Display are field upgrade-able; so X-Rite can add new EDR tables when they will release new SDK files to calibration software developers... X-Rite hasn't released something new from 2012, so all display tech you see as selections of the meter, they are all based to 2011-2012 display tech samples, popular monitors that period to post-production/web/photo-editing market. The only display type where X-Rite used a consumer TV model was the Plasma table where they used a Panasonic Plasma. (here
you can find info about which monitors used for the creation of each table)
When you have only a colorimeter, you will have to select the closest match of your display tech (but its not sure if you will have good results without a spectro).
The ideal solution is to use a spectrophotometer to create a unique meter correction table for your Sony.
If this is not possible, the only you can do is to calibrate 2-point grayscale with RAW XYZ (default calibration table of the meter, called Generic CMF also) and to another preset with W-LED (for example)... at end to swap between these 2 picture presets while you will look a grayscale ramp pattern and see which one looks more neutral to your eyes. (its guessing method, the results can be variable, for that reason its better to use a spectro).
Additionally, an another solution is to perform a perceptual matching, if you have a secondary display (older LCD for example, plasma) to place it side by side with your Sony, calibrate the older display 100% White with your i1Display PRO and then display a 100% White pattern from your Sony and without meter adjust the controls until you will have a perceptual match with the old display, then measure the white point and create a custom colorspace based to REC.709 but enter the custom white point coordinates, then calibrate your Sony based to that new custom colorspace as target.
The perceptual matching approach has been developed by Light Illusion in partnership with the professional display manufacture Flanders Scientific Inc. (FSI).
and FSI have their own version of the same information here: http://flandersscientific.com/index/...htSpaceCMS.pdf
While the instructions are written for LightSpace CMS, as that is what FSI use for all their factory calibration, the basic information will work with any calibration system, like HCFR, CalMAN etc.
When someone don't have access to a spectro, a workaround to improve his color accuracy (for DisplayCAL/HCFR/ArgyllCMS users) is to try locating a CCSS (Colorimeter Correction Spectral Sample) file, if someone has measured with his spectro and uploaded that spectral file for your display, it will work with i1Display PRO or ColorMunki Display (both meters can read spectral corrections).
But when you are using CCSS correction, you assume that the internal spectral data of X-Rite meter from the factory hasn't drifted, since the internal meter spectra + CCSS spectra data are used to create a correction matrix.
Using other people CCMX file will not work, only if you have your own meters combo (colorimeter+spectro) you can create matrix based correction (CCMX = Colorimeter Correction Matrix) which will be only valid for your current meters/display.
