Interesting thread to read.
Always learning here in avs discussions.
I first calibrated my DIY screen/PJ (Sony VPL-VW60) combo with this Monster Cable ISF Jenna Drey freebie I got from 2007 CES show.
Sure, quick and dirty but it probably got me 90-95% calibrated for free, better than just out of box.
My dad/brother in-law have borrowed that DVD to "calibrate" their HDTV's.
Recently I got the AVIA Blu-ray disc and went thru their procedure.
Hopefully I got the greyscale dialed, then used the filter over the eye for some basic color adj.
I'm just getting into gamma curves, reading up on that so I might post Q&A in the calibration sub-forum.More here for my Screen calibration so far (Part of my "Study: Native 16:9 vs a-Lens/PJ Scaler" thread
What this thread made me realize is I calibrated basically just for movie watching, i.e., no lights on and the curtains closed to the HT room.
(Pict prior to carpeting/kitchenette being done)
I did not even consider having a 2nd calibration for some % lights on for the big sporting events, NCAA Final Four coming up April 4!
I'll have to do that, and even look at for that mode can I turn my Sony VPL-VW60 to high lamp mode to help offset some of the ambient light via IR/Harmony, and when in movie mode back to low lamp mode.
Another weekend tweaker task, thx guys for giving me homework.
