    I did it once and worked fine. I just treated the backlight like a normal paper media with an standard white base (the that comes with the eye1 pro). After i edited the white point of the profile with an ICC edit software like Gretag Profilemaker (profile editor module). Works pretty well once you find the right white point that emulates the white of the backlight once is turned on.

    Keep in mind to factor in the light source. The lighting will create a cast.

    Yes, it works. With some tricks it can profile backlits like a charm. I described the method on the first page of this topic.

    So is it just like profiling a paper? Printing a chart without color management, waiting for it to dry and than measuring and profiilng it?
    Try choose the better Profile that you had. After this try print the file in DoubleStrike mode (2 times the same pass) and analize the result in a backlight.
