Windows 7: Using Windows 7 x64 Home Prem. to calibrate an HDTV

Using Windows 7 x64 Home Prem. to calibrate an HDTV


I'm hoping to use my MacBook Pro running Windows 7 x64 Home Premium and ColorHCFR to calibrate the HDTVs of various friends and relatives. It has to be Windows 7 because the OS X version of ColorHCFR doesn't yet support my colorimeter.

The plan is to use the MacBook Pro to send patterns from the AVS HD 709 collection to the HDTV as an external display (over a Thunderbolt to HDMI adapter), whilst using the main display to read back the values using ColorHCFR.

1) It's critical the patterns reach the HDTV unmodified, so I'll be disabling calibration loading by Windows. Are there any other steps I should take?

2) I need the patterns to run in the HDTV full screen while monitoring readings received by ColorHCFR on the MBP's main display: is that possible using Windows7? I know in OS X it's tricky, because it greys out the other screen when you use the native full-screen mode.

3) Any other problems anyone can think of that I might encounter?

Hopefully I can get this figured out, because I calibrated my own TV a while back (it reads movies over USB so it wasn't so difficult) and I'm impressed with the difference it makes. Be nice to share this around!

Cheers socios
