Question Software to calibrate computer monitor with Spyder 4 TV HD

Hi Guys, novice DIYer here who recently purchased a Spyder 4 TV HD to calibrate my Panasonic P55VT50 here in the UK.

Found the software Spyder supplied very basic but have had some great results using the colorimeter with HCFR software. Picture quality much better than out of the box and much kinder on the eyes. The Spyder 4 colorimeter does seem to have problems reading in the deep black area but other than that seems to provide good readings.

Am now encouraged to use the colorimeter to calibrate my laptop and computer monitor for photographic work. However, was surprised when Datacolor said they would not supply software to do this and suggested I buy another Spyder 4 kit specifically for monitor calibration. Very unhelpful and short sighted on their part, as I shall probably never be buying any of their products again!

Does anyone know if there is an alternative software package that could use the Spyder4 colorimeter for Monitors/laptops?

Would the HCFR software be any use for Monitors/laptops?

Would be grateful for any advice on this topic.
