    Just got off the phone with portrait displays and they mentioned that the new c6 meters do not work with any other software other than calman. Is this true? I wanted to invest in a probe but calman is out of my budget. Any help is appreciated! Thanks!

    I see an unlock code for C6 in ArgyllCMS:

    { "i1Display3 ", { 0xc9bfafe0, 0x02871166 }, i1d3_disppro, i1d3_sc_c6 },

    with munki display (=i1dsiplay studio), i1d3 pro retail, i1d3 pro oem (= revB retail), i1d3 wacom, i1d3 NEC, i1D3 for HP, i1d3 for quatto. The only one missing is Viewsonic i1d3 verison but … who is going to buy that?

    Also I see no reason to but C6 version of i1d3. C6 in Calman has the advantage over other retail i1d3 pro to use some “CCSS/EDR”-like corrections that are only unlocked if C6 is detected… but you have MORE of them in Displaycal colorimeter correction database AND Calman has a 3×3 manual matrix correction input, so it is possible to obtain (with some matrix calculation work based on Aryllcms debug data) a 3×3 matrix XYZ->XYZ for EVERY CCSS in Displaycal colorimeter database, and then use that 3×3 matrx in calman.

    Also some HW calibration solutions may reject C6 as its unlock code is different from retail or OEM i1d3.

    If you also say that you do not plan to buy a Calman license, then is ZERO reasons to buy a C6, get a retail i1display pro.

    Hi all,

    I am trying to understand if in the end DisplayCal is compatible with the C6? I have seen one other post where apparently a calibration has been completed, but for the life of me I have been unable to do so.

    I am getting the dreaded new_disprd failed with ‘Instrument Access Failed’

    Using the latest version (3.8.9.3) on an M1 Mac / Monterey and ArgyllCMS 2.3.0 [had used 2.3.1 too but read it may cause problems so I downgraded].

    Ironically, Spyder 5 as a colorimeter on the same machine/config, works fine.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks!

    DisplayCAL has nothing to do with i1d3 versions compability, this is up to ArgyllCMS

    For anyone that is stuck on this issue, Vincent pointed me in the right direction;

    Looking at ArgyllCMS changelogs, I saw the following for version 2.3.0 –

    Removed native i1d3 C6 instrument support as a favor to X-Rite. Anybody adversely affected should contact me (Graeme Gill).

    Which is the reason why C6 does not work in 2.3.0 and later. Replacing the library with the previous to 2.3.0 (which is 2.2.1) fixes the above issue.

    2nd message has the unlock code if you know how to patch it and recompile. I think that Graeme put a env variable to avoid recompiling but you should ask in argyll maillist.
