Hi Graeme,

thanks for the write up a year ago, I could have saved some time if I
found it earlier ;-)

One question forcing me to revive the old topic though: you mentioned

x "fakeread values are normalised to 100"

x meaning that dispread values are not normalised to 100

and therefore the LUMINANCE_XYZ_CDM2 should be copied from dispread
test.ti3 to fakeread ref.ti3 file.

My confusion stems from the test.ti3 (produced by dispread), which reads
that the numbers _are_ normalised:

LUMINANCE_XYZ_CDM2 "66.758160 61.640342 95.172183"
1 100.000 100.000 100.000 108.303 100.000 154.399

Is your hint re. copying of LUMINANCE_XYZ_CDM2 values from test.ti3 to
ref.ti3 still valid nowadays?

BTW, my vendor tailored Huey for Samsung SyncMaster XL20 seems broken
(all of sudden there is too much green after calibration), hence I had a
similar idea as the original poster to re-use my Eye-one Display 2 and
rely on Samsung's emulated sRGB to create the correction matrix.

I may end up buying a new monitor anyway, just giving it a try. The
first impression is that the correction matrix works - I use it for
profiling in "custom mode / native colour space" of the display.
