OK, I've read the whole thread. I glad I found this. I have been having a total nightmare
with my K8500 player. (That was after another nightmare burning the disc with a friend's borrowed Blu-Ray burner!). I am on the very latest firmware from last week (v1014).
I'm using Calman HE. I'm not interested in the LUTs or clever stuff.
The automated process (http://www.displaycalibrations.com/m...solutions.html
) with batch files - that's for a long time far in the future, when I can run.
The semi-automated process where it automatically steps from pattern to pattern - again, that's for the future when I can run. Not yet
At the moment, I can't even walk. All I want to do is manually
pull up specific patterns, one at a time when CalMan prompts for them, and manually
display them, one at a time, and have them stay on the screen for a long time
while I learn all this and find my feet.
The K8500 remote doesn't have numbered buttons; it has a "123" button, but this doesn't work anywhere.
After several hours trying I have learned this. The Calman 11-Point greyscale patterns are all lumped into one piece of video. They are at Title 206. If I play the menu option for the 11-Point greyscale it flies through too quickly for me to get to the pause button (unless I am VERY quick) because the remote is so ****. I know it's not your problem to cater for bad remotes, it is entirely Samsung's fault, but it has made my life miserable
Next, it is running the patterns much to quickly for me. So, I fight with the remote to pull up the "tools" menu. Then "select scene", then "Chapter search" and I am faced with a long list of chapters (in this case 1-16). If I scroll to 1, and select it (because the 10-second delay is the next thing available) then it plays Chapter 1 for a fraction of a second then immediately jumps to Chapter 14, and starts flying through the patterns much too quickly all over again
