As far as I understand it altering the brightness on your monitor will throw the caliabration out. I don't know why the brightness is altered when you change the refresh rate though. Anyone?

Agreed, altering brightness does invalidate a calibrated profile and you'd have to do it again. On the face of it, altering the refresh rate wouldn't seem to be likely to have the same effect, but if you think about it, you're changing the way images are displayed on the screen (guns are 'refreshing' the screen more often), so it makes sense that you might need to recalibrate.

Not sure if this makes sense, I'm just trying to make sense of it.

Hobbs and Doug, thanks for the clarification it does make sense. I'm new to the calibration lark, and am still learning about all the factors that go into it.
