I have followed Manni01's recommendations for calibration.
The software completes the gamma calibration then skips color. It then completed is calculations and sends them to the projector. When the completed summary of the calibration is displayed it says error for 100% white. This of course throws the calibration out the window. The colors are whacky and totally off.
I guess my question is what could cause a error reading 100% white?
Most likely meter placement. It has to be facing the projector, aiming at the lens, without any ambiant light. Make sure it's at the right distance when set to the user mode you plan to calibrate. It has to be inside the box on the first screen that help you to adjust distance.

Only contrast and brightness if necessary, forget about tint and color. As long as your colour preset isn't undersaturated you shouldn't need to use these (or the CMS). They make things worse.

Looks a bit washed out, gonna give it a few, if I don't like it I'll try again this weekend.
Reset all your gamma and color temp settings when calibrating an SDR preset. You only need minor gamma correction in SDR after an autocal, like +2 on dark gamma to get a BT1886 from a 2.4 preset. You can't use the HDR gamma settings for SDR, so calibrate to different user settings with different gamma custom presets.

now this maybe a dumb question butwhen i was doing phase 2 on manni's steps, w/ the cmd on i noticed my gamma curve change, even though i was doing color only
is this normal?
finally i ran the 709 w/ filter since i used cinema2 which applies the filter.
how do my results look?
Don't use the filter for a rec-709 calibration, it wrecks the saturations. Please follow the instructions and use standard during calibration, then select an uploaded rec-709nf and autocal it.
Make sure you select color only in the settings after having done gamma, so that it skips the gamma steps. You should see a dash after gamma in the post cal results, meaning it's been skipped and won't be saved.
Make sure you follow the updated procedure I described in my last calibration, it's much simpler and faster but I recommend you create an SDR rec-709 preset based on standard during calibration and then rec-709nf, and an HDR bt2020 preset based on reference during calibration then the bt2020 profile.
If you stray aside from these, you get weird results like the one you posted
