So, I got a new TV today, a Sony KDL60EX645 and did a calibration using an i1Display Pro.
The Sony lacks a CMS, so I figured I'd go about and adjust the color and tint after I finished the brightness, picture and grayscale.
I remember I read before that to adjust color and tint on a TV using a meter, you pull up a 75% Red Saturation window for the color and adjust the Y value until it's 21% of a 100% White Y value.
To adjust Tint/Hue, you bring up a 75% Cyan Saturation and adjust the x and y until they are close to the proper Cyan value.
However, when I did it this way, my numbers for Color & Tint/Hue were 43 and R7 respectively.
I figured I'd humor myself and cross check the values using a Blue Filter and the Flashing Decoder Bars window... When I looked, the Color portion of the bars were flashing a bit, Tint not so much, but a little as well.
Adjusting using the filters and my eyes came to values of 52 and 0 for Color & Tint/Hue.
Which should I go with in this situation? Should I just keep the meter value? The picture didn't look bad with the 43/R7 from the meter reading... but the 52/0 one looks OK too, though a little punchier. I'm not sure if the 52/0 is an accurate picture, though, as I am trying to trust the meter more...
Please let me know your thoughts and thank you.
