Are most blu-ray players today, without errors at the hdmi port(YCbCr)? I'm looking to get a new player with little to no errors, when I calibrate.

Hi all, I 'd just like to confirm that when using the black level pattern with the flashing bars, 16 should not flash, but 17 should. I came across this old thread:

For those struggling with brightness, contrast & backlight settings on LCD's

Long story short, they are saying that if 17 flashed, the brightness setting is incorrect. Instead, they say 19 should flash, and everything below that should be black. This doesn't seem right to me.

There was a more recent discussion in this thread on setting the black level. Even the experts had somewhat different opinions.

The way I do it is to slowly lower the Brightness control until 16 just stops flashing; i.e., 16 is visually as black as 15 and below. At this point, 17 (and even 18) may or may not be visible, but 19 or 20 should definitely be visible, if you don't want the shadows to be crushed.

Interesting. Thanks. On my current set, 16 doesn't flash but 17 does with brightness set to 45. If I go down to 44, 17 totally disappears.

Seems to me 45 is the right setting to use. Going down to 44 will cause some shadows details to be lost, without even improving the black.

What you can also do (in a dark room) is look at the surrounding black on that pattern and lower brightness until the point where it doesn't get any darker. If everything else is setup correctly (color space, HDMI black level, etc.), that should also be where 17 is just barely visible. Just an additional way to confirm.
