Mythperception raises its ugly head again! From the "sticky" threads above:

'Sharing display menu settings?'

Nonsense George. I was helped six years ago on this website with settings that I was quite pleased with. Why would I want to pay for something when people are quite happy to share their settings for free.

You wouldn't, if accuracy isn't your objective. But then please don't use the term calibration and please post in a forum for your display type instead.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.

It appears from your response that you didn't bother to read the link I provided. People swap settings elsewhere in the forum. This section of the forum is for display calibration discussions. Using other people's settings is not calibration, nor is it a reliable way to achieve an accurate picture. Persisting with this methodology, after being instructed correctly, is the essence of nonsense. Image performance that pleases you, and accurate program reproduction, are not automatically mutually inclusive.

My original post was in the display forum. I asked for help and was advised to go to this thread. I realize now that I used the wrong term when I said calibration and that's why I was pointed this way. I read your sticky . It's rude. That's what ticked me off. Try one that's a little more polite next time. Being kind goes a long way. Not all of us are electronic guru's such as yourself. Like I said. I was able to copy settings before on my last tv and came away 100% satisfied. That's all I'm trying to do now.

One man's frankness and directness is another man's rudeness. Ignoring sound advice and persisting in erroneous behavior can also be construed as irresponsible and rude. You are caught up in the myth that copying someone else's settings gets you display performance that matches that other display. You were rudely and unkindly given bad advice in the other section of the forum, as happens more frequently in other parts of the forum. This section is about accuracy, precision, reference standards, and disciplined methods to achieve those attributes. You are being referred, guided, instructed, and encouraged to pursue swapping settings in other parts of the forum. Here we pursue reference over preference. We value fidelity over what any individual viewer may "like."

People have actually MEASURED video displays using settings from a different sample of the same display that was properly calibrated first. There is only a 4% chance of doing better with copied settings compared to simply using best choices from the user menu... like selecting cinema or movie mode, selecting the color temperature that is closest to white (often Warm2), etc.

How do you KNOW the settings you copied years ago were better than what you were using before you used the copied settings? You have nothing to measure with. Some people get psychological satisfaction from using settings someone else provides after a calibration, but in the real world, it does not work. Every panel is different, every circuit board is different. Every component on every circuit board has a specified tolerance, usually +/- 10% or +/- 20% depending on the type of component. All those tolerances "add up" and cause slightly different results for every display. The only way to know you have an accurate display is to measure it. Either with your own equipment or by hiring a professional calibrator.
