    I have been looking into doing the calibration of my new set but dont have the software needed for it so tried HCFR but its a tad tricky.

    I looked at calMANs free color match software but it doesnt find my Spyder device just always says simulated on the workflow. I thought as it is free it would work, it finds it in the main options and puts it in the list of meters but in red, then i cant find it in the actual work flow settings...

    any ideas?

    Or something with a workflow that I could use which is free?

    I had a tinker with HCFR and guessing what the TV settings do. I guessed that 2 point is the adjustment increments, with 20 point being finer adjustments. I also guessed that low means the bottom end of the scale adjusts and high means the top end of the scale adjusts. Can someone confirm if this is correct?

    Also I was just doing the grey scale for now to see how it changes when I adjust settings. Is this graph looking better than stock? I assume I'm trying to get them all aligned to 100%.. or as close as I can.

    Yes that's correct.

    There's a dedicated 2016 OLED calibration thread here: LG OLED 2016 - Calibration Thread

    I'd recommend having a read through there, a lot of the forum members in there use HCFR and you should be able to get better info than I'd be able to give you.

    Thanks read the old guide for grey scale that used HCFR as a reference which gave me this output which I think is good... hopefully. I used 2 point for now just to learn how it works.

    Does anyone have the TV settings for the gamma, gamut etc I should be using and the hcfr settings just in case. As I'm using settings pulled from lots of threads which may not be correct.
