Deleted, wrong thread.
Probably wrong thread for this questionWould the RS500 have any issues with brightness on a 137, 16:9, 0.9 gain AT screen? (Seymour Center Stage XD). It is a completely light controlled room with velvet and black ceiling.
I am looking to do a false wall and add this screen. Thank you for the input!

When using the Xrite instead of the Spyder, can you do a reliable color adjustment instead of just the Gamma?SpyderX is not supported but Spyder5 has been discontinued so you may have to settle for a used one. Any version (including the Express) will work.
Alternatively, you can buy an xrite i1Display Pro and use a patch (Google it) to make it work with Autocal.
The Autocal software comes with instructions so it’s up to you how much additional reading you want to do. Most of the “meat” is in the first 12 posts.
The i1Display Pro is generally considered to be more accurate than the Spyder5 and SpyerX.When using the Xrite instead of the Spyder, can you do a reliable color adjustment instead of just the Gamma?
Now I use my Spyder5 to do Gamma on my RS400 and calibrate the grayscale/CMS afterwards with my Spectracal C6 and Calman.
Also would you happen to know it the 'hack' works with the Spectracal branded meter as well, should be the same I think?
Yes, I find the i1Display Pro good enough for both gamma and colour Autocal, even though the Spyder 5 in theory can be better for gamma (since you can get higher readings by bringing it close to the projector lens)I would like to get some confirmation that I understand correctly (I have read and followed this entire thread, along with the owners thread, and now the ArgyII thread... but it is very much like pouring a bucket of water into a shot glass...)
I have an RS540, so with the ArgyII dll an xrite i1Display Pro could be used with Autocal for gamma and color correct? And the i1Display Pro is generally regarded to produce solid results for both correct? I have a Spyder 5, but have not/ will not use it for color. The i1Display Pro is attainable for me (espescially if I could sell the Spyder to a new home), whereas most of the other options are not.
All the profiles are in a zip file which you can find at the end of post 1.HI,
Sorry to bother everyone, but I cannot seem to find Manni's profiles for my RS600. Can someone point me to them?
The instructions come with the JVC auotocal software.Also How do I load a profile to the projector once I hook up my laptop?
That depends on how far off it is currently. In addition to gamma (obviously), Gamma Autocal will also improve the greyscale consistency (colour cast at some levels relative to white).getting the spyder 5 for my rs600 soon (got it free) I know its fine for gamma and ify for color...if i just correct gamma is that worth the trouble? will it significantly improve the picture?
thanks for the reply. can you check the current gamma before doing any calibration?That depends on how far off it is currently. In addition to gamma (obviously), Gamma Autocal will also improve the greyscale consistency (colour cast at some levels relative to white).
Yes, you can check by running Autocal in the Log Only mode (which I recommend). Unfortunately there’s no way to save the log other than by screen capture.thanks for the reply. can you check the current gamma before doing any calibration?
are the spyder 5's not even worth doing the color autocal?
