How can one tell if they are using their meter correctly or if the meter is off?
I'm using HCFR 3.4.2 with a i1Display Pro rev B (brand new). Using AVSHD709 I could get a rock solid greyscale on a Sony XBR43X800D (quasi-10bit 4K TN panel), but the resulting picture clearly had errors throughout with red and green banding in the greyscale.
Using DisplayCAL on Eizo monitors results in a 6500K sRGB 2.2 calibration that looks awfully blue to the eye.
Using HCFR on a Panasonic Plasma ST50 results in readings that just don't seem correct...
Is there any method to determine if a meter is off without the use of another meter?
For instance, when calibrating the ST50 I've tried both "plasma" and "refresh". Both don't seem to read accurately. By this I mean if I adjust Red to be 21% of 100% white, it is quite visibly wrong on the flashing color bars. Same with cyan. If I go by the meter, it is clearly wrong "by eye*". This leads me to believe either
a) I'm setting HCFR up incorrectly
b) my meter is "off"
I've seen reference to @zoyd
correction matrixes, but it seems like those have been rolled into HCFR at this point under "plasma", no?
Any help? I'd like to know if my meter is off while I am within the period of return.
*using the blue filter from Spears & Munsil v2 Blu-ray
(additionally on the plasma, the smoothest greyscale delta I can achieve (average sub 2.0) results in a picture that is crushing blacks and clipping white! Is is possible my ST50 simply can't achieve 120cd/m2 with a good picture? If I ignore the meter and set Contrast and Brightness where they should be by clipping patterns then my 10% APL 100% white reading is near 80cd/m2.)
This is a difficult learning experience where I am now second-guessing my equipment! Please--someone set me straight!
