Hi,

You might try posting on the printer forum. Lots of discussion there on color management etc.

I suspect the "too cool-blue", "too warm-yellow" is comong from where you are setting the white point: 6500K(cool-blue), 5800K(warm-yellow). The Spyder is measuring your ambient light and trying to get the monitor to give something comparable to the surroundings. Incandescent lights are "warm", flourescents are "cool". What the Spyder is trying to do is to calibrate your monitor so the monitor matches printed images which will look different depending on what kind of light they are viewed in.

Try having the Spyder calibrate to different white points (if possible) and see which one you like. It may take some time for your eye/brain to adjust to new settings.

Hth,

Bob Schoner
