Trying to calibrate the dreamcolor display with an XRite i1Display Pro  I've exceeded the internal calibration so I had to figure this out.

 

The guys at HP's Workstation team are not really much help with this as I have basic menu questions that nobody can figure out.  If anyone out there owns one and has some experience calibrating it by all means, chime in.

 

Also of interest is the way windows handles color management.  That seems to be an odd hiccup to this whole operation and I want to see if I need to do anything to avoid Windows or my graphics card software interfering in the process.

 

Menu-Image Adjustment - The selection for use video levels 16-235 is greyed out.  So I can't select it. I'd like to know why.

 

Also curious if anyone out there uses this for grading and I'd be curious what color space you most often grade the work in.  For web as well as for broadcast.

 

Any help is much appreciated.  Even no response is better than what the folks at HP have been able to offer me.
