If so do you know where I can get the default RGB and Contrast info for the X-Star?
There are no defaults with an OSD-less monitor. Panels vary between the same monitor model, this is expected. The colorimeter helps you start by getting the same whitepoint on both via first setting the RGB channels to suitable positions, then making a color profile that the PC loads at the graphics cards side to correct the rest. Both the Qnix and the X-Star get calibrated to a reference point but before you start, the colorimeter would have helped you adjust the RGB sliders on the Qnix to get an accurate white. With the X-Star you will have to resort exclusively to a software color profile, as do all single-input Qnix / X-Star users.

That would be PERFECT for you, larrytek7. We'll help you get good profiles and then you can return the Colormunki.
@snapdragon, I'm hoping it's the Colormunki Display? Because that's an excellent sensor.
