I should have said "Easy Mode" but that now seems to be an option missing off my screen since I only seem to have the "Advanced" option with certain limitations on the LT.
This is what Customer Support previously told me to do:-
"Please choose the Easy mode first as this will give you valuable information about the native state of your monitor. When the summary screen comes up at the end of everything, please make note of the results for colour temperature, gamma and luminance. Knowing what your monitor is helps considerably if you are attempting to reach some known settings of values.
After you've seen the Easy mode results, you can quit the program without saving your profile. (yes, you do want to do that).
Now relaunch the program and choose the Advanced Mode. Please deselect the ambient light checkbox, as this isn't relevant to monitor profiling.
Choose the values of 6500, 2.2 and 120 cd/m2 for your target settings. When you place the i1 device, I would recommend that you not put it in the middle of your monitor as the on-screen displays for your monitor are likely set to come up there. The i1 device can make its measurements from anywhere on your monitor. If you are finding that the program is not recognizing the device on screen, just say ok and let it continue. It will fill your entire screen with colour and will make the correct measurements.
You will need to know how to adjust your contrast, and luminance (brightness) with your monitor's controls. Our software presumes that you are familiar with those controls and you will need to make some adjustments to at least one control in most cases.
When the software asks you to adjust the RGB channels (White Point), please right click past this control, as we don't recommend the use of it with LCD monitors. This was a feature that was best used with CRT's (tube monitors)."
This is latest from Customer Support when I told them I was given no choice of "Easy" or "Advanced" modes on my screen and sent them a screen shot:-
It sounds as though you own an i1DisplayLT device, which will not have the Easy or Advanced options.
Choose your correct monitor type, choose 6500K for colour temp, and 2.2 for gamma.
You won't have any control over brightness in this process, due to using an i1DisplayLT.
The software should do the rest.
Best of luck.

It now sounds as if I should not adjust RBG channels and have no brightness function?
Support has just e-mailed me:-
The i1DisplayLT will not have the two monitor profiling options, and will not allow you to control luminance.
You can always decide to upgrade your i1DisplayLT to an i1Display2 at a later date, by purchasing an upgrade code (around $100 US).
We currently sell both models, so your device would not be superseded, just a defeatured model vs. the i1Display2."
Sounds as if all the features for the Display 2 version (which uses the same calibrator) are already in the downloaded software, but you need $100 to unlock them!
