So I've been using the AVS 709 discs for a few years now, but I ended up getting a Spyder4TV HD from Datacolor today to review at the website I work at. After comparing my results with each, I've gotten results that differ dramatically between each. When I use the Spyder4TV HD and calibrate my display, it tells me that my contrast should be at 98, color at 41 , and tint G45|R55. When I pop in the AVS 709 disc, it shows that the settings are incorrect. Contrast is over-blown where the grey's have a pink hue (so I turn it down to 89), color and tint are off as well, with the settings showing correct results (in Blue mode) at 36 and G46|R54 respectively.
It bring some concern as to whether the Spyder4TV HD is calibrating correctly. Should I be getting these vastly different results between the two? If I had another Blu-ray with patterns besides T2: Skynet (which I've read yield poor results, since it's apparently REC601), I would triple check, but I don't as far as I know. Does anyone have any information on this, or can help me out? I'd love to use this and finally get some truly accurate results, but so far it's proving that my eye-sight may be doing me better... Which doesn't seem right,
