Sounds like you may be running into the same issue I have had.
I use Ted's Lightspace as my reference. It generates the readings I trust.
Using the Generator in HCFR than sweeping through 21-pt manually, so I use it to calibrate.
When I set HCFR to 16-235, my levels come out to high. I believe my computer is scaling to video levels in a way I am unable to disable.
When I set HCFR to 0-255, the levels come out correctly. 5% says 13,13,13 but reads like Red's 5% pattern (which corresponds to video level 27,27,27).
I get my 21-ot calibration roughed-in this way and then use Ted's Lightspace pattern for a final true-in (manually).
If anyone can explain to me a way to change the settings on my laptop so 16-235 works properly, that would be great.
I have the OLED on Black Level'Low' and my Sony Bluray player has YCbCr/RGB (HDMI) set to 'Auto' in case that may be contributing to the mismatch.
The options I have out of the Bluray player are:
I suppose if I set the OLED to Black Level High and the Bluray player to RGB, that HCFR on 16-235 might line up with Ted's Lightspace patterns, but what is the preferred video mode to use out of the Bluray player and how can I get HCFR to generate similar patterns?
