I have the i1Display Pro colorimeter +Calman 5.1 (latest FW)+ AVS 709 disk ( I used window patterns). I have calibrated my 60" Pioneer Kuro NON ELITE using this equipment.
I have only the Colour & Tint "slider" bar, as well as the usual Brightness, sharpness.... etc adjustments on my TV. Pretty straight forward !!
I have calibrated the set for colour & tint using the blue filter method with (Spears & Munsil HD disk as well as DVE HD BD disks) & in conjunction with Calman 4.X. When using the disks & filter I get (colour = +4 & Tint = Red 4).
I have also calibrated the set for colour & tint using Calman 5.0. When I used Calman 5.0, I got (colour = 1 & Tint = Red 1).
Yesterday, I used the Calman 5.1 software and I started to look at the "Quick Analysis" CMS chart.
With the TV settings at (colour = +4 & Tint = Red 4) my Delta 2000 chart was below 5 and below 3 for all primary and secondary colours with 100% white at 4.3 & 75% white at 4.9.
With the TV settings at (colour = 1 & Tint = Red 1) my Delta 2000 chart was just slightly better for all primary and secondary colours than the above.
I decided to adjust the TV settings to (colour = 0 & Tint = 0). With the TV settings at (colour = 0 & Tint = 0) my Delta 2000 chart was now below 4 and well below 3 for primary and secondary colours with 100% white at 4.1 & 75% white at 4.2.
Question: Which method should I use for colour & Tint, the disks & blue filter or Calman 5.0 or 5.1?
BTW real world material on Sat/ & BD (Oppo 93), looked very good, skin tones looked natural for both the (colour = 0 & Tint = 0) & (colour = +4 & Tint = Red 4) I could not tell them apart.
