Has anyone here ran into this issue (Burn-In Mode and settings being reset) when using ADC? I suppose I could just do it manually. But between $700 for the XB271HU that has light bleed in bottom right and $180 for a calibration tool that has issues with the monitor...I'm starting to feel a bit drained/ripped off.
ADC is pretty useless... even on other monitors (ex. U3011) I got much better results by simply using other software to do the OSD settings myself. If you use DisplayCal instead of the i1Display Pro's software, one of the first steps is an interactive calibration that gives you readings as you make adjustments to OSD.
Really, the only OSD settings you should touch on the monitor are Brightness and User Color RGB sliders. If you move Contrast past 50, it starts clipping bright colors. Everything else is already set correctly, or just a useless feature.
If you prefer the software that comes with the i1Display Pro, you can download something else like HCFR to get interactive calibration tools to get the optimal settings using OSD. Or you can just use DisplayCal for that first step, and don't bother to let it profile the display afterwards.
Feel free to PM me with calibration questions!
