I thought of that and in fact got accuracy for all 6 points with a flat gamma which is great for the higher temp.
Unfortunately my lowest CT mode was still > 9000 K and adjustment caused the chaos I posted earlier.
I have tried adjusting gamma on RGB balanced points by moving the 3 primaries together but this was again not particularly successful. As you say a lot of in and out with the SM and always causing me to reset to factory presets.
I will try your method of partial blue reduction and similar reductions on the other points and see if I can get a happy medium. My main problem is that with RGB balance correct at D65 with 100% white means that all other points above 70% white are incorrect for balance and gamma no matter how I adjust my closest point (#5).
In other words I can correct points from 70 to 95% only by having RGB balance at 100% being incorrect.
So which is more important correct 100% balance with bad gamma and balance on its adjacent points or good RGB balance and gamma below an incorrect 100% RGB balance?
In truth I am trying to use the TV controls to their best effect before I use my eeCB.
Without eeCB in circuit I use a DUO on 75 or 80% saturation patterns which works extremely well but I am reluctant to use both boxes in series.
