Judging colours via Intensity Pro/DCDP on Eizo HD2442W

I recently bought an Eizo HD2442W monitor to preview my HDV50i footage in a HD-TV way. The monitors receives YUV 4:2:2 signals thru a Intensity Pro card via HDMI.

Unfortunately, I cannot fully calibrate this preview, because my Intensity Pro card does not allow software-based adjustments and the Eizo does not offer single RGB corrections. The measurments with the Eye-One Display 2 and ColorHFCR tell me that an avarage Gamma of 2,2 and a temperature of around 6500K is reached, but Red and Green are 20% plus in regard to REC 709 standard.

Therefore, I calibareted the Eizo into sRGB (in reviews it reached the full sRGB range) on a software-base. Now I am wondering, if I should rather refer to the DCDP in Final Cut, send to the monitor via DVI, or stick to the Intensity Pro-HDMI preview in questions of colour correction. To my impression, the Intensity Pro signal looks slighty outwashed and it appears not as saturated as the DCDP/sRGB image. Yet, the DCDP/sRGB-preview is missing contrast an details in dark areas.

Does anybody has an advice for me?
