Which order shod I calibrate my TV?
CMS first or grayscale first?

I have always thought that CMS is difficult.

I have some settings on every color at my TV.
Lumiance I know thats brightness. Y
Then I got tint that controll moves the dot at the diagram up and down from the [ ].
And the Saturation controll moves the dot at the diagram like this <---- [ ]

So if I just calibrate after that I shod be OK right?
Ofcourse I watch the Delta and numbers.

I have LG 60PA550T and a LG BD player.

I calibrate with i1display 3 and CalMan 4.

This is the way to do it.

Getting grayscale correct has a large effect on your secondaries, so doing tint/color on them is a waste of time till you have your white point correct.

Grayscale is your Canvas ... the CMS/color/tint is your paint.

Canvas must be neutral before you apply the paint or it skews all the paint color.
