I will be checking the saturation levels at various points to find out if blue is over saturated at lower saturation levels as blue seems to be wrong, particularly on standard Def material. Reds are a bit orange, but that is due to the phosphor material, which seem similar to the old crt P22 phosphor material.
I've always ended with subjectively a bit too much green in the picture after my calibrations with an i1 Pro. The last one I did I opted for a bit increased red channel to compensate, but still wasn't quite happy. Windowed, small, big, APL, none of it mattered. I've now tried your advice with reducing the green (always left green controls alone before). Putting Green Gain at -3 seems to have lowered the channel evenly across the whole range, I haven't touched the 10pt green controls.
I've compared the results with my previous run and there is a subtle but noticeable subjective improvement. Unfortunately, I don't have another display to compare it to to see how close to actual proper results I am, but I'm still happier with the new settings so thank you for that tip.
Also, have you noticed that the picture isn't the same between True Cinema and Custom with the same settings? True Cinema seems to have a bit more "pop" to it, like slightly increased contrast or something.

On the skin tones issue, this is from another post of mine:
A couple of photos of the VT60 here showing B&W content:
In the first photo, the lower APL upper section of the TV picture skews blue-green.
In the second photo, the higher APL picture part containing the horizontal crossbar skews pink. The crossbar and upright are meant to be the same colour.
I LOVE my ST60, but this sure is an annoying issue. I do have to learn to relax more and just watch the content instead of always analyzing it, though
