...and should I add that I'm colorblind :)

that sums it up nicely, my quest is finally over...I've found the perfect 
colorimeter app and my cheap s2 does the job quite decently if you let it  work 

Thanks again for all the explanations and this fantastic piece of software, I 
guess some serious company should buy some licence for your software and fire 
its internal coders......because nothing compares.

my last annoying problem is that I have a .cal file for my CRT, and another one 
for my DLP projector.

I never use both at the same time, and I would like to somehow force the LUT in 
my dualhead ATI HD2600 PCI-E videocard......so the CRT lut would be forced on 
the primary VGA output and the DLP lut would be forced on the secondary DVI 
output.......I guess this is quite impossible ?

atm I've made batches, and each time I switch displays I run them......not too 
big of a deal, but that would be pretty sweet to be able to force them in the 
videocard LUT's permanently.

I've tried it with .ICM files in the enhanced windows ICM profile tool, but 
that simply doesn't work when I switch displays.....it only works if the 2 
displays are always running at the same time...

Best Regards,
