I use the free software HCFR and Spyder 4 Pro. Only using 20% and 80% stimulus. The internal patterns are limited to 80% for color temperature. HCFR has internal patterns, but I chose to use the display internal patterns because I don't trust the HDMI ports accuracy. Also, the factory menu, color temperature settings are Global. Positive for SmartCast to usb.
I also used BT.1886 gamma 2.2, since DV expects 2.2. Its kind of cumbersome, because the factory menu is up with the pattern and affecting the readings on the low end. So while doing the cal @ 20%, I would get the delta-e, as low as possible. Press the menu button, clearing the factory menu, so that the meter readings will be without light caused by the menu. Doing this until delta-e was well under one.
I plan on doing some white balance fine tuning after doing a SDR color checker sweep. I use different sources for different aspects. Like sharpness calibration for streaming DV/HDR, I used Netfilx DV pattern that has wheels at each corner, that are good for detecting moire effect.
I found sharpness at 4 was perfect for streaming. Next on the list, is to purchase R.Masciola's DV patterns Profile 5(streaming). When Stacey Spears DV Profile 7 patterns are shipped out, I can check them out on the Bluray player.
