Would I be able to use the xrite pro calibration meter with this disk. I have seen some YouTube videos but the all use a computer to do the profile, but none of them tell you how to use the profile to fine tune the projector. It seems that the pc is what calibrated the color signal being sent to the projector

hi wheeler, you are getting into calibration which is a complex topic there are literally mega page threads on forums on this, infact forums dedicated for just that. probably beyond realms of a thread like this here. I dont personally think calibration is something most folks can take on due to steep learning curve. certainly if happy to dive in feet first many do....just takes bit of getting around. personally i have done a bit of it myself but not kept upto date and sold Xrite I had ages ago. even spyder I had for autocal I used to do with last projector I sold off. if not going to keep upto date and doing regularly just better off to do basics and get a pro in when need be is my approach now...

and to be truthful these projectors are actually very good out of box. unless right upto speed on what doing, id just do some basics to suit your setting (which his very necessary - setting luminance, brightness, contrast colour and thats it) and leave rest to a calibrator who can dial in for perfection and it is needed I think for these projectors especially for HDR.

I will dive into the forums because I do not have anyone here that can do it. I have spent all day calling every electronic place here and they do not offer projector ot tv calibration. Best buy has one but they said they just to brightness contrast, and color. I feel I can do this much with my disney wow bluray.
Thanks

hi wheeler, it seems you are in the us. I'd just pop onto AVS, I know there are calibrators that travel around eg ChadB and Kris Deering. theres also curtpalme forum :)

can understand with best buy, not really a specialist store. different case here where i am, just about all specialist stores have access to a calibrator they can recommend.

Yeah to me Best Buys are more like Currys over here in that all they are interested in is moving boxes rather specialising is anything in particular, so great for price but customer service and expertise will be lacking compared to a dedicated store.

Also would recommend going on to AVS Forum, though as with all forums it's international but the majority of members are from North America.
