I note the color munki diaply is identical (hardware) to that of the i1D3, so, if im only ever going to be using HCFR, will the performance of the CM be identical to that of the i1D3, including reading times? FYI I will be calibrating my plasma.

The OEM i1display3 is a Spectracal unit, its sold as a meter only with Calman, no X-Rite software.

you are good to go.

Xrite recommends a powered usb hub for the i1pro - not required for i1D3?

I'm trying to use a i1display pro (I guess what you call "i1d3"?) on w7 x64 but changing the drivers just won't work.


If I just specify the directory, without doing "let me pick from a list"/"have disk", Windows simply says that it has determined that the driver is already up to date.


And if I choose the "Have Disk" and select "i1Disp.inf", it says "The folder you specified doesn't contain a compatible software driver".


Did this ever happen to anyone? Because so far, I've only read reports of people who were able to simply do the switch...

you need version 3.0.4 of HCFR for your meter, no drivers are required.

But then why do I only see an empty sensor list? (and why does it say this in the changelog for 3.0.4.0? "Update argyll code to latest version with fixes for i1d3")

Look in device manager and see if there are any devices flagged with a yellow triangle. If not, unplug the d3 from the pc and plug it back in. Open HCFR and see if the meter is recognized. You do not need to install any drivers for the d3, windows detects it and lists it as an HID-Compliant device, and an USB Input Device. You can see this in devices and printers. If the i1Display3 does not show in Devices and Printers you may have a problem with the USB port, try another port.


Be sure you are using HFR 3.0.4.0 by clicking Help / About


Also be sure the X-rite software is not running, or any other software is accessing the d3.

Haha... I know you have to make a luser assumption but... I am aware when hardware isn't working correctly... I would have mentioned that.

And I assume basiccolor display also would've had issues with recognizing it in that case.

Nope, it's there, working just fine.

Thanks for that - as a noob, do i have to download i1D3ccss.exe from somewhere? Where do i find it?

Thanks

i1D3ccss is included in HCFR 3.0.4.0 in the C:\Program Files (x86)\HCFR Calibration\Tools\ directory.

I just downloaded Argyll Color Management Win32 v1.4.0 and compared the files in that libusb1 subdirectory with the Drivers supdirectory from my installation of HCFR 3.0.4.0, but they don't match. I'm assuming something is wrong?

Not sure where to post bug reports - apologies if this is not the correct thread!


In any case, HFCR 3.0.4.0, installed on a Dell laptop model D620 running WindowsXP SP3.

I have this installed on 3 different laptops, 2 of the D620's and one a D630.

On one of the laptops (my main one!) HFCR crashes when going to the "Select Sensor" window. There is a brief delay, then HFCR exits.

The also occurs if I attempt to open an existing .chrc file I had previously saved.


I have attached the minidump and stderr.log files. In looking at the stderr.log file, it appears to be some kind of issue with one of my USB devices. It attemps to open a device called "NmeaDev" then reports "SEH Exception Occured".


I have tried to disable various USB devices - Bluetooth, and some devices from a Sprint aircard. There are less devices being accessed, but in the end the access to the NmeaDev seems to crash HFCR.


Thanks

Have to excuse my somewhat ignorance on this subject but I have recently purchased a Samsung D8000 plasma display which I would like ti calibrate using my i1D pro and this latest version of HCFR.

However i am trying to understand what I need to do to ensure I have an accurate reading using this combination. I'm not sure how to use the i1d3ccss utility to convert the EDR files into readable ccss files.

Using command prompt i have type 'i1d3ccss.exe' - nothing happens at all. What am i doing wrong here????

OK think ive figured this out - just done a calibration, HCFR is telling me everything is where it should be.

Shall run some comparisons a bit later

I just wanted to add my own dose of thanks to JohnAd and others for reinvigorating this project. I used HCFR with my i1 pro spectro about 5-6 years ago (some of the names appearing in this thread are familiar from my discussions back then and they were very helpful) but I haven't had any time over recent years to revisit it. I hadn't even realised the project had folded until I saw this thread. Back then I borrowed a Windows laptop to run HCFR. I was hoping to be able to use it on a Mac but it seems I will have to wait awhile. I have been upgrading my HT equipment (CB III -> CB III HD, new BD player etc) and was looking forward to getting HCFR out again to check my Pioneer LX608d Kuro. Having skimmed through these 26 pages, when can we expect the i1 pro (old version not the 2) support up and running and what's the status of a Mac version?


Once again - very thankful for the work.

Hi everybody


I tested the new HCFR (very good job) with the spyder 3 colormeter and it works fine.


I plan to buy a new colormeter, a X-Rite i1 Display Pro.

I read that there is two versions, a box version (that include X-rite software) and an OEM version (without software).


Could you tell me if both versions work with the last revision of HCFR software ????


I apologize if the question have already been ask but my english is not very good and it is not easy for me to read the 25 pages of the post.


Many thanks in advance,


Daffy
