New plasma calibration (confused about a few things)
I have experience calibrating my Dell monitor with dispcalGUI and a ColorMunki Display, for photo editing.
Now I have a new Samsung plasma, with a pentile pixel arrangement (if it matters), that I want to calibrate for movies. I have no idea if I can just use the same method as for photo editing.
I am also very confused regarding how to use HCFR, which seems to be more common around here. I read many articles about it, and checked all the "useful links" in the sticky about HCFR, and some of them mention using a pattern disc while others mention that madTPG and others generate their own patterns, so I really have no idea what to do.
I also read that people use their eyes to calibrating the gray scale thingy - is there a point to do so if I have a colorimeter?
One more thing: I read that new plasmas should not be set to more than 50% contrast for the "break in" period of about 150 hours. Is there a point in a calibrating the plasma when it's set to 50% contrast (and Cell Light is at 50% too)?
