PLEASE SEE POST #5 for calibration charts.
I'm using HCFR and iOne colorimeter to calibrate a Sony XBR8. Irrespective of where I set the IRE100% using contrast setting, I can't get the IRE10% to 0.65% without washing out the blacks. With the below black bar on DVE just invisible, I get in the area of 0.15fL as opposed to .24fL. This would be expected from the display which has a low gamma. Otherwise, between 20 and 90 IRE, everything is spot on.
My question is how to most appropriately address this. Should I do all of the grayscale adjustments/iterations first, then reset the brightness by eye, to make the below black disappear, or vice versa?
