For your display, select LCD (for non-refresh displays type), its the default mode.
Refresh is for CRT/Plasma or DLP projectors etc.
When you select 'refresh', the refreshing period will be measured and this will affect the integration time which will be used. (I'm saying it as general info).
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, one solution is to use the default calibration table, I think is called Generic Default CMF in HCFR.
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.
DisplayCAL/HCFR/ArgyllCMS support also CCMX file, but 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.
