[Stepan Ko] "o this is specifically a davinci viewer problem."
This is an everything viewer problem.

[Stepan Ko] "cause i can't use the resolves internal waveform"
The internal scopes are certainly accurate.

[Stepan Ko] "and checking the values of the colors with a color picker in photoshop until I get them all right. Then again I might never get them right."
You're confusing consistent with right. If the image in qt player and the resolve viewer match... the likelihood is that the one in the resolve viewer is wrong.

Resolve 10 specifically added support for a GUI Lut, so that you could (among other things) calibrate that very viewer window.

The way to go about using that would be to purchase lightspace (or now calman) and use resolve as a pattern generator, position your probe onto the GUI viewer and then proceed to profile and calibrate your display.

Have the software generate a LUT and then load that within Resolve as a GUI viewing LUT. This will prevent it from being applied elsewhere.

This will give you a "more accurate" though perhaps not entirely accurate GUI display. But, QT or other media players could well apply transforms that still make it inconsistent.

Best is a reference display, that gives you the ability to point at an image and say "this high precision, and purpose built device is showing an accurate image, other devices SHOULD, but may not, agree with it, in that case, those devices are wrong"
