I just did not realise that there was so much science and art involved. A few months ago I was happy just to watch a movie but now I am dabbling with gamma, greyscale etc.
I just did not realise how bad my display was until you run it through a program like chromapure or a similar program. You really won't know any difference until you discover that color intensity and gamma do not increase in a linear fashion when ire increases. It is a difficult concept to grasp until you run through a process like autocal.
I now understand the beauty of a separate CMs unit and the flexibility and adjustability it brings to the table.
The really weird thing was autocal ran brilliantly the first 2 times I ran it. I was never able to repeat a flat gamma curve of 2.22, consistent greyscale and color gamut despite running auto cal 20 times after that. It was a relief to find out that I could fine tune anything in the dvdo duo even if autocal does not get it spot on.
