Screen shot shows my graphics card connection according to card manual, but in fact there is only one
DVI-I Dual Link connection. plus the other 1 and 2 listed.

Card should support a dual monior set up, but I did not get that to work when comp. was new and have not botherd since.   

Existing Eizo has two inputs, useful, I have a linux comp connectd to the 2nd connection.
this is a back up situation in case win7 and or comp. failes.

Hi Jeff,
You have Display Port and HDMI. Eizo recommend Display port or HDMI for maximum quality. A Display Port cable is supplied with the monitor so I recommend you use that.

85.9 miles by road = 1h 40min

by train 5h 12min (the 8.43 train is already 1 min late)
Then walk Rasen to Wickenby 6miles, Google allows 16 minutes for this presumabley based on us all beeing Mo Farah clones.

No pub, so lunch charge would = tech. charge.

Anyway, thanks for all the interest in my little update project

Monitor recd. and installed.

Connections did not work out as planned so still useing DVI
Got the old Eizo connected to linux, so can now look at Fred's videos at same time as working on main screen.  This will be handy as all instructions now seem to be on YouTube.

Now be getting down to profiling/calibrating. ie stepping into the unknown.

First question.

Is a seperate set up required for Photography, Printing and Web design?
Attached screen shot.

Also, that's two questions - what is the entry in Qimage Display - monitor profile.

Ignore those Targets altogether. I think I said in my email to you Click "Create New Target", set profile to "Native" and I suggest you start with brightness of 100Cd/Msq
See screen shot of my targets - you can see I'm using 80cd/Msq.
Read those article I sent you, especially  the Native Digital ones.
Terry

PS. got to go out now, will tell you about profile names later, I had to ask Eizo support!

Thanks Terry.
I have read so much that mind is a bit of a blur.

Done as you suggest and images look ok on screen.
Done a test print and started to create a new printer profile, now leaving overnight to dry and will do 2nd print tomorrow and another test print and check difference.

I will get there eventually.

Hello Terry.

Back on job.

Checked card install disk again, and find mine has VGA, HDMI and DVI-I
(access to back of computer difficult with out unplugging all 12 cables)
Screen came with DisplayPort Mini, DVI, USB and Mains cables, but no HDMI.

I have found a HDMI cable in my spare cable box, but it has no integral filter fitted.

I will search net and try and locate HDMI with filter if that would be a better connection.

Not sure what you mean by "integral filter" unless it's like those cylindrical things you get on some USB cables.
If that's the case I wouldn't worry about it - why would you want to filter the signal?
My Graphics card has a mini HDMI socket so I had to buy a new cable, it has no filters. Amazon have a big choice of HDMI cables.
BTW. I assume you have connected to monitor via USB too, that is essential for hardware calibration system.
