And that is the tricky part for me with this display. I will set Black Extension to 0, and adjust my WTW, and then adjust from there.
I think someone (Zoyd?) posted something about using SubBrightness in the service menu on a Panasonic 600 to change the rise out of black to even things out. I don't know what it does on the 8UK.

This is HDMI-720p set to RGB from my Oppo DVD player.

And the Secondaries line up pretty well, and agree with the blue filter check, so I really don't need the Color/Tint controls anyway.
AS Colin6969 suggested to you, I measured the 8UK with User Menu Gamma at 2.2 - the 2.5 setting seems too dark to me.
Compared to the i1 Pro, my S2 in LCD mode measured a decent +.003 for both x and y at 10 and 20 "IRE"; at higher levels it was less accurate. The S2 read time was set to 500ms and "extended dark" as Colin suggested.
I wouldn't worry too much about the readings at 10. I believe I have read that even 20 IRE is less than 2.7 % of total output.
