calibrating two displays
now that i've replaced both displays, i would like to calibrate them both.
i have eye-one display2, and i am able to calibrate both. the problem arises when i restart windows -- the secondary monitor reverts to un-calibrated mode, but the primary display stays calibrated.
i checked windows color settings, and sure enough, the icc profile created by eye-one is the one in use.
is there a windows setting i am missing?
First of all, if you're not able to find a solution here the i1 email support is excellent. I had the exact problem you're mentioning, and it turned out I had a conflicting profile loader. In my case it was my ATI utility software that was "helpfully" loading the system default profile after the i1 loader was finished. I couldn't find a way to fully disable it, so I eventually just uninstalled the ATI utilities (didn't need them anyway). You might also want to make sure Adobe Gamma isn't in your startup folder (another common culpret for double profiling).
I also found out from experience that none of the software, even the Windows properties, didn't show my 2nd monitor settings accurately until I actually dragged them over onto the 2nd monitor workspace. This shouldn't affect you, for me it was the special adjustment software installed by my monitors. Even if I had properties set to monitor 2 it would still only adjust the monitor actually displaying the properties dialog.
Finally, make sure you're using the latest i1 iMatch software, I think they're up to v3.3 now.
