I don't have meter or the Avs disc.I tried setting tint(by comparing too an iPad)first by putting color bars pattern up,then by putting up full screen colors that I taped on a channel.i was getting different results( might of just been because of the different channels they were on)..which way is better color bars or full screen colors for setting tint? & What would be better native color space where blue and green is too high ? Or auto where red is too high? I have a reddish grayscale similar too warm2.and this tvs reds/pinks have blue push in them that give reds a magenta tint.( no cms on tv).
Different broadcasters will broadcast in different Color and Tint level's, Now about all you can do is pick 3 or 4 channels that you watch the most and then adjust the tint for the best SKIN tone. You will end up splitting the Ideal setting among your favorites.
That's about the best you can do with the limited resources you have.
I use skintones. The magenta reds on mine throws the skin tones off, but it's only noticable on some shows with reddish lighting.Ive read skin is a mixture of magenta and yellow.
Auto is more consistent/stable with my grayscale which is fairly close too warm2.On mine Native has a blueish or greenish tone and it looks really good on some stuff ,but with the plasma abl making the screen go red/yellow it causes too much color changing.Some screens blueish or greenish, some reddish.
Everything you do without a meter (except setting black level with the brightness control and a PLUGE pattern and setting Sharpness with a sharpness evaluation pattern) is a guess.
Using a blue filter and color bars to set color and tint controls does not work most of the time -- it is perpetuated as if it is a procedure that is reliable over a wide range of test setup discs but it only works if the blue filter is a PRECISE spectral match for the TV in question. Since that's essentially impossible to package in a $20-$30 test/setup disc you get a compromise filter that's not going to match the TV very often. And filters drift as they age.
So you are left with adjusting by eye if you don't have a meter. Some discs, maybe most of them, say to adjust the image by eye after doing the blue filter setup... because the blue filter method just isn't reliable most of the time.

Is it best too adjust tint when abl is high,medium or low? Abl makes things magenta/red on mine.
Hi, i'm not an expert but what i do with my panasonic plasma tv is adjust the tint in cinema mode using the red filter pattern that comes in the Spears and Muncil 3D blu-ray disc. the red filter i bought it with the Avia Calibration DVD disc. i prefer the red filter instead of blue filter because of the skin tones. but before all that, first, i adjust the brightness and contrast with the same disc.
