I am using the free calibration disc that I got from this site, and I'm trying to adjust the color and tint with a blue filter on my LCD tv. No matter what tint and color settings I use I cannot get the flashing color and tint squares to match the bars around them. Is my tv just not able to do this? Or maybe my blue filter is not the correct blue? I don't know what I'm doing wrong.

Not "around". You match within the same bar. From the manual:

The gray bar at the left has a flashing blue box and the blue bar has a
flashing gray box. Look through a blue filter at these two bars. As you
raise and lower the color control you will see the gray and blue change
relative to each other. You want to set the color control so gray and
blue match. Ideally when this happens you would see almost no
flashing on the center of the boxes while looking through the blue
color filter. Realistically you might always be able to see a little bit of
flashing, and if that's the case then just set the color control so that
gray and blue come as close as possible to matching.
The magenta and cyan bars also have flashing boxes with the other
color. Looking through the blue filter, you use these two bars to adjust
the tint or hue control. The idea is similar to setting the color control.
Ideally you would not want to see any flashing when looking through
the blue filter, but just use the tint control to minimize the flashing so
the center of the box appears close to the same shade.

Yes, within the same bar. That's exactly what I meant when I said "around". The flashing box is supposed to disappear inside the bar, is that correct?

Yes. Blue and gray should look the same (color) and cyan and magenta should look the same (tint).

Ok, now I need to figure out why I can't make them disappear on my tv.

Some questions that might be helpful:

- What TV are you using?
- What picture mode are you using on the TV?
- Which Blu-ray player are you using?
- Are you using one of the picture modes on the Blu-ray player?
- How are the devices connected? Is there anything between the Blu-ray player and the TV?

It could be the picture mode you are using has color jacked around so much you can't fix it, or that the Blu-ray player is in a picture mode that does the same, or a combination or the two, just for starters. Answering those questions will help determine if other people have had issues with the same equipment and how they got around it.
