I just ordered a I1 display Pro to calibrate a future projector probably a Epson 6050. However as I considered my purchase I can't figure out how it could possibly be any use in calibrating a projector on a grey screen. If its sensor is grabbing the light from the projector and not the altered reflected light from the grey colored screen how can you calibrate the projector for your particular screen.

The calibration section mostly talks about emmisive display devices not projected ones. Is there a way to use i1 display pro to adjust the projector to project onto a grey screen accurately?

HTPC. Onkyo 636, Polk audio speakers and Klipsch sub. KHO-7 Outdoor speakers. Homeseer homecontrol over Z-wave.

If the sensor is between the projector and screen, resting on the screen, how does the light reflect into the sensor from the screen?

You need to place the sensor like 1-2 feet off the screen and just careful of not reading the meter's shadow

To be or NOT to be......YOU are WHO you ARE

Yeah I just saw a video on YouTube. They placed the sensor on a tripod pointing not at the projector but at the screen. Now it makes sense. I didn't know it could read from a distance.

yes u dont rest it on the screen, put the meter facing the screen 2feet away and tilt it upwards a little so u dont hit the meter shadow.
