ThanksmMy laptop's bluetooth chipset is Marvell, which I have not always had the best luck with over the years (they also make USB chipsets). No issues with other devices I own but it does not play nice with the Pi. Not a huge deal for me so far as an Ethernet connection to my router is working.
But, to your point, I have an Ethernet to USB-C adapter on order just to rule out any potential issues.
It was answered sufficiently by others above, but instead of AutoCal using the internal pattern generator of the LG, you just use the Pi as an external (and superior) pattern generator. Ted's disc has patterns to use for validation pre and post calibration. You can just add this to the Pi instead of running it via a Blu Ray. Quality of life improvement.
I was implying that if you are not technically inclined at all, you may just want to continue using the internal pattern generator on the LG and AutoCal and call it a day. Depends on if all the time setting this stuff up is worth it to you. Some (aka my wife) would argue that all of this is the very definition of splitting hairs. Your mileage may vary.
I have tried multiple runs with the ITPG with not good results. Could be my meter too but this sounds like a fun project.
Just to be clear Calman autocal integrates the Pi instead of the internal generator but all other CM settings still apply?
