The MX meter is calibrated to read MX screens.
LX screens fit the MX but transmit slightly more light.
Many believe that a brighter image is easier to focus.

Hallo Chris,
is it possible to recalibrate meter to another focus screen?

As I said earlier, 1/3 stop is barely going to make any difference but if you're worried about it just adjust the iso setting to compensate.
