I am really finding it to impossible to follow you. When I try to look up what you mentioned in your postings, I either can't find anything or the information on Google counters what you say.
I'm results-oriented. I have tuned up TVs since the days of
bias and drive controls on the back of bulky cabinets.
I know the basics of color and will learn the interactions of the
various controls till I master them. The Sharp Aquos Quattron
models have been shunned by professional calibrators because they
take a lot of time and patience to tame. I don't blame the guys
who must go by the book because of the crush of schedule, but
someone needs to work on these sets because they are screwed up
out of the box. I have a thread where the overwhelming majority
of people with the same set have found my settings satisfactory.
This doesn't mean I can fix any set or solve every problem.
But as long as the professionals are unwilling to take on this
technology -- now 5 years old -- there will be a need for hacks
like me. I'm fascinated by color perception and find many of the
discussions here quite exciting. I'm sorry if I have given you the
impression of a monkey with a typewriter. Do you own a Quattron?
