ANNOUNCEMENT (3/1/2011): ControlCAL v1.50 Available!

ControlCAL is an Control and Calibration Application for Video Displays supporting a Serial/RS232 interface. ControlCAL will allow you to send any available commands to any Display that allows RS232 control (in 'Advance' Mode). You may need the document that shows the RS232 codes for your specific Display model.

Using ControlCAL's One Page Calibration Screen will allow you easy access to your Display's Calibration Controls... No need to fumble through the Display's Menu with its Remote Control.

ControlCal is a very well designed tool that will allow one to attain maximum performance from these displays. I myself own the software and will be making this option available to my Pio-9G clients.

Well after researching ControlCAL, and making sure I was comfortable with the process, I took the dive and purchased the software and the Keyspan USB/Serial adapter. My wife and I activated the ISF modes on Christmas Eve, and the difference is amazing. ISF night with DNice's settings is simply the best I have seen a blu-ray look. ISF day makes football look glorious. This is what I wanted out of my 151, and now I have it. I urge all of you guys on the fence to take a chance, ISF night and day modes make this tv shine. Thanks Turbe and DNice for all your hard work, watching Ole Miss and Utah win last night with these new settings....it was better than being there.

I have to admit I was a little nervous before trying because I

and input ISF night and ISF day settings rather easily.:thumbsup:

ControlCAL.ini Setting Descriptions

Default Settings (Note: ControlCAL will default most values if the ControlCAL.ini file is missing or improper values are entered):
Quote:

[Profile]
Forced_Wait_For=-1
Startup_Load="C:\YourProfile.cdp"

[AutoSend]
AutoSend_Timing=15
Forced_Wait_For=[-1, 0-2000]
If this is Set between 0ms to 2000ms, ControlCAL will always use this value for the Wait_For Communication Setting instead of the one entered and saved with the Display Profile (helpful if the Display Profile is Locked). This is the time (in ms) between commands sent to the Display. Set to -1 to use the Wait_For value entered and saved with the Display Profile.


Startup_Load=Path/Display Profile
If you want to load a specific Display Profile each time ControlCAL is started, enter the Display Profile's Full Path and File Name without quotes.


AutoSend_Timing=[1-60]
How long the AutoSend Window is open/closed for sending commands when Auto Send is enabled (in ms). The Default [15] will allow commands to be sent approximately once per second. Use a smaller number to allow more steps to be sent per second, larger for less steps. Setting this to 60 would allow commands to be sent approximately once every two seconds.



More information concerning these Settings can be found Below.
Wolfy tested various Settings and reporting his results Below.

NOTE:
Make sure ControlCAL.ini is in the same directory as ControlCAL's .EXE.
If you make any changes while ControlCAL is running, you need to restart ControlCAL.

Great feedback :D

The Wait_Time saved within the Pioneer Display Profiles is 500ms, so I would not set this to 1000. Yesterday, if I remember correctly, gatornavy reported that 100 works for him. A lower number will improve performance. I am not sure I would go that low, maybe 200 but if you experience issues, set this higher or to -1. It will depend on your computer's processor, COM Port speed and the Display itself.

I won't change the saved Display Profile setting until many more have tested as 500ms was recommended to me.

Please try setting it to less than 500 (you can even set 0 but I doubt the Display would consistently keep up with communications) and post your results here. I recommend trying 400, 300, 200 and 100.

100 should make it feel zippy.. :D

Remember, this setting will force the Wait_Time value you entered (if not -1) for all Profiles loaded in the future.

Try setting this to 10, 6 and 5. IMO, best settings are < 30, but I did want 31 to 60 just in case....

I personally liked 15 but you will want to find what works best for you.... :D

Please post feedback..

************************************************** **************

Test Report, ControlCAL.ini (Using the Pioneer 8G C3 Display Profiles):



Hardware/Software:
  • ControlCAL v. 1.41 Beta2 build 12.
  • M/B: ASUS A7N8X-E Deluxe.
  • CPU: AMD Athlon XP 3000+ (2.09 GHz).
  • RAM: 2 GB Corsair.
  • OPsys: Windows XP Pro, SP2, fully up to date.
  • COM1 setting: BPS: 9600, Data Bits: 8, Parity: None, Stop Bits: 1, Flow Control: None.
  • Display: Pioneer PDP-428XD, RS-232 setting: 9600BPS
  • Cable: Straight serial cable female-female DB9, approximately 3 m.
ControlCAL.ini settings:

Forced_Wait_For:

Legend: Setting: Refresh/Send All (TV Response Time/ControlCAL Response Time); End Calibration (TV Response Time/ControlCAL Response Time); No issues/Issues.

All measurements are in seconds. I used Profile P1 for all measurements.

By TV Response Time I mean the time it takes from start to fisnish for the TV to show that it has completed receiving/sending the data, e.g. the time from start to finish form when you click Refresh until the ISF menu on the TV has stopped flashing.

By ControlCAL Response Time I mean the time it takes from start to finish for ControlCAL's UI to show that it has completed receiving/sending the data, e.g. the time from start to finish from when you click Refresh and the UI shows the message "Polling Display - Please Wait..." and until it disappears.
  • 1000: Refresh/Send All (21/21); End Calibration (26/33); No issues (1).
  • -1 (Default = 500): Refresh/Send All (11/11); End Calibration (26/17); No issues (2).
  • 400: Refresh/Send All (11/8); End Calibration (26/13); No issues.
  • 300: Refresh/Send All (11/6); End Calibration (26/10); No issues.
  • 200: Refresh/Send All (11/4); End Calibration (26/7); No issues.
  • 100: Refresh/Send All (11/2); End Calibration (26/4); Issues (3).
(1): I know that the setting of 1000 makes no sense, I only included it for reference to other settings. It does however make for a better timing for when the "ISF Calibration Mode has been disabled" dialog appears after having clicked End Calibration ;)


(2): ControlCAL is slightly faster than the TV.

(3): After having entered ISF Day/Night, when clicking Refresh the following labels turns red: Sharpness, Color Management-R, G-Low, B-Low, R Gamma, G Gamma. Subsequent clicks on Refresh or Send All turns some labels back to normal, but never all of the labels. I can still move the red sliders and the values are being sent to the display and were saved when I click Save Settings and End Calibration so I'm not sure if this only is a "cosmetic" issue.

AutoSend_Timing:

No issue with any setting from the default of 15 to 10, 6 or 5. The only difference I've noticed is that for the settings 6 and 5 the sliders for Color Management has slightly better response, meaning that I can select one of the CM sliders and click on the right or left arrow at a rate of about two presses a second and the values are continuously being sent to the TV. With the settings above that I need to press with a rate about one press per second otherwise the slider won't change its setting from one press to the next.

Conclusion: From my testing I have only had issues with the setting Forced_Wait_For set to 100 and even for that setting nothing happened other than some labels turning red.

Having said that, one might have to select a different RS-232 setting in the Pioneer to benefit from the lower settings for Forced_Wait_For, otherwise you will still be waiting for the TV to finish(?). Personally though I see no need for it, so I will stick with the default settings which I am very pleased with.

I updated POST #4 with controlcal.ini settings details.

I'll be updating POST #2 soon with additional information for Creating your own Display Profiles.

v1.41 RC1 (Build 20) is Now Available!

Just in time since Build 19 and the current Activation Keys will be expiring soon (which means some would lose the ability to load Profiles and use some of ControlCAL's options). :D

The current Activation Keys and Display Profiles will not work with this or future Versions. It's going to take time for me to distribute new Activation Keys. I will be sending out new Activation Keys to my Professional Users and those Users who have Donated to ControlCAL's development first.

I decided not to add the Auto Refresh or Import/Export Options in v1.41, look for them in the next Minor Version. :o

Enjoy! ;)


v1.41 RC1:
Build 20 - 07/29/2008
+First Release Candidate - No New Features/Options will be added in v1.41.
+Full Activation System is now Enabled.
+Option in the Pioneer C3 Mode to customize 3 of 4 text lines saved to the ISFccc Interface (Professional Plus Activation Key required).

Chad B 09-11-2008 08:39 PM

How do I do this?

+Option in the Pioneer C3 Mode to customize 3 of 4 text lines saved to the ISFccc Interface (Professional Plus Activation Key required).

When I try to edit the profile, it asks for a password.
I'm sure it's been covered somewhere, but I've been browsing the form for a while and can't find it.

Hi Chad, you edit your ControlCAL.ini file which is in the same directory as the .EXE. You can edit this file with Notepad.

Build 22 works fine too. I didn't fiddle with all of the controls in the 9G Elite profile, but no problems with any of the regular operations.

Turbe,

I downloaded 1.41 for my personal use.

How long does it usually take to receive an activation key?

Thanks,

Turbe,

I downloaded 1.41 and used the activation key and everything seems
to be running smooth. Initially I was getting a Com error but this was
resolved when I changed to COM 3 from COM 1.

Also, everytime I start up ControlCal the default start up profile is the
Mits. profile, is there a way to have one of the Pioneer 9G profiles be
the default start up?

you edit your ControlCAL.ini file which is in the same directory as the .EXE. You can edit this file with Notepad.
Also, when I try to edit my profile it asks for a password and I can't
figure out how to get around this. How exactly do I perform the above
in quotations.

Sorry, but I newbie when it comes to this.:o

Thanks,
Mike

You don't Edit the Profile, you Edit your ControlCAL.ini file which is a separate file in the same directory as the ControlCAL Application (or should be). You should be able to double left click on the ControlCAL.com which will open this file in Notepad so you can make changes and then Save.

The default ControlCAL.ini file should like something like this:

Quote:

[Profile]
Forced_Wait_For=-1

[AutoSend]
AutoSend_Timing=15
Simply add one line with the complete path and filename of the Display Profile you want ControlCAL to load each time you start:

Quote:

[Profile]
Forced_Wait_For=-1
Startup_Load="C:\YourProfile.cdp"

[AutoSend]
AutoSend_Timing=15
You need to change C:\YourProfile.cdp for your own setup.

ControlCAL.ini is a configuration file for Windows Applications.
