Completed, after 4 hours, the Calman Autocal of my JU7100 using the direct connect through the Ext-Link.
Should have taken 1, but MobileForge setup issues, miscues, mistakes, and `how did that happen', sort of slowed things down. But finally finished at 4 AM, HDMI 1 and 2. Now to tackle the USB and HDR calibrations.
Addendum: USB calibration went horribly wrong - woke up this morning realizing I had left the Ext-Link cable connected to the laptop. Start over !
Edit: It wasn't the Ext-Link cable, but Samsung smucking up our sets !
# 1 - Nit level has dropped from 450 to 375 Nits. `IF', you MANUALLY switch SmartLED from Standard to High. Else wise Standard is 341 Nits.
# 2 - The dual settings for USB Inputs is gone, replaced by either SDR or HDR 2 Point settings - your choice. Separate SDR and HDR CMS settings, and 10 Point SDR settings showing up, BUT, do any of these HDR settings actually matter, or is Samsung switching in ALL the HDR settings from the ASM ?
# 3 - Is Samsung trying to drive us to buy New ? (Something like Apple dimming your getting older Smart Phone)
Next up - the HDMI HDR calibration for my 4K UBD-K8500 Input. Will results be the same ?
Note: Another thing now that has changed, despite Calman set to 100% Windows, the SDR patterns on the USB only came up as 18%. Same patterns on the KS9800, full screen. (Of course I haven't checked since the last FW update. Maybe they messed that set up to ?)
