    TIP – Pioneer Elite Calibration

    I do want to remind you guys to check a couple things (first – before starting the session) on each Pioneer Elite Calibration..

    Check the Light Sensor Setting (9G’s) – Disable
    Check the Power Save Mode – No Power Save Mode (suggested)

    Believe it or not, this is the #1 Support Issue I get calls about (and has been for months – many calls) – simply forgetting to check those two settings. Even the guys (several) that have worked on many Pioneers have forgotten – leading to a call (and in some cases, a return visit).

    Another one that comes up here and there, verify the Input Setup (Video vs PC) is configured as your client needs… many Controls are not available when the Input is configured as PC.

    Welcome Shawn.

    Do you expect that ISF level not supported message to be a big deal when I hit a client’s home?

    I got it for the first time last week and did not have time to trouble shoot it. It was a touch up job for a bunch of stuff the person owned. Touched up Pure mode and moved on.

    Unfortunately, I don’t have access to Elites on a whim … so will have to deal with this on the next client set.

    Thanks.

    regards

    Hi Michael,

    Thank you (and to Ray and Gregg).. πŸ˜€

    No, shouldn’t be – the causes for this are:

    []Wrong Display Profile used for that Pioneer Model.
    []For Elite Monitors – Serial Port ID # not set to ALL (you can still Power On/Off the Display if not set to ALL
    []Cable and/or serial port/adapter issue (including damaged cable – you may be able to Power On/Off but the cable got damaged and you can’t enter the ISFccc Interface – is more common than we like).

    What specific Model were you working on?

    I’ll email you the ControlCAL Pioneer Display Profile List…

    It was a 141 model … ( I chose the europe one for kicks and got the expected message about not licensed profile)

    I had migrated the program over to a new laptop and retired the old one.

    Changed the com port stuff at home to make it see the USB to serial adaptor.

    Shawn,
    Could you post the ControlCAL Pioneer Display profile list here….so anyone thinking about getting the program can see what displays it works with and what profiles that may need to purchase.

    Thanks

    Welcome Shawn!

    This was a great idea Ray! Kudos to you!

    My question for Shawn is, could you give a brief overview as to the ISF activiation in the M series of displays? This is very interesting, although I have not had a request yet, I may soon and would like to know what it entails a bit more as well as the improvements over the standard profile calibration.

    Thanks!

    Shawn,

    I need some help.

    I was at a client’s home in Spokane today working on his sound. Fortunately, I had worked on the 8th gen elite 6 months back.

    Hooked up the computer …

    2 gender changers in hand … 4 cables … and 2 usb to serial adaptors.

    All combinations return the isf message.

    The F12 talks to the tv … but the program does not. send and receive … all fine.

    hit start calibration and the isf message pops up.

    tried all the 4 profiles … none work … same message.

    help …

    thanks

    For an 9G Elite TV, from standby, press the Home Key on the remote and within 3 seconds press the Power Button. Verify the baud rate (bottom banner) is at 9600 (should be default, though today, one calibrator was having problems and the display was set to 2400bps).

    What model was it today? Could you Power On / Off the Display with the buttons in the Pioneer Display Profile?

    I can provide a verified and tested straight-through Serial Cable and USB Serial Adapter (with Drivers for XP and Vista) if you are interested, PM me.

    I had a chance to speak to Michael on Saturday, turns out ControlCAL was configured to use the COM Port assigned to the internal modem (COM3)…

    EDIT: Michael emailed me about his last Pionner job (on Sunday), looks like the COM Port change did the trick.. πŸ˜€

    Now I’m trying to get the company name stuff to show up right. It did not show up again yesterday. I went to the ini file and my information is in there. I did not change this file which worked on the old 1.41 version.

    Any hints?

    thanks

    Check the ControlCAL.ini file in: C:Program FilesControlCAL

    This is the new default location.

    If needed, you can copy your old ControlCAL.ini file from the old location to C:Program FilesControlCAL.

    I would completely delete/remove the old folder/directory (location).

    Ok, that’s interesting. Michael, are you saying you can display your company name on the TV rather than ControlCal Made Easy?

    Yes, that is an option for the Pro Plus Key… I’ll send you the link for info (though I emailed this originally) πŸ™‚
