I’m on windows 10 and calibrating a Z32x through a DeckLink MiniMonitor 4k outputting from Resolve. Instrument is a ColorMunki Display. I’m able to calibrate and profile the display fine. I disconnect resolve “UnicodeDecodeError: ‘ascii’ codec can’t decode byte 0xb2 in position 0: ordinal not in range(128)” every time I click Measurement report. This doesn’t happen when calibrating my other GUI displays and they run through verification just fine.
