I used the HDNet pattern a couple of years ago but no longer have this channel. Is there any other test patterns broadcast on other cable channels? What about local networks...have they been know to put out any?

These patterns are really only good for the channel you watch and nothing else. In fact, they are only good for the program block that they run in. the next program that comes on the same channel may be off again.

Nothing is reference.

Best bet is to take the BD settings and apply them to cable and fine tune as needed based on the material you watch.
