Are there any detriments for using the APL patterns for an LCD TV? I tried and ran the Greyscale and Color (100% A / 100% S) patterns with both the APL patterns and the Full Fields patterns and the results were mostly the same (the biggest differences were about 0,3 dE), except for the color blue, specifically in delta luminance. The Full Field patterns show a significantly lower amount of blue. All the other colors have almost the same delta luminance. I've turned all the auto dimming functions off, but I read that Samsung's LCD TV's have some sort of auto dimming features that can't be turned off which can occur when the screen shows a very bright image covering almost (or fully) the whole screen.
I know it is usually recommended to use Full Field patterns on LCD TV's, but are there any reasons not to use the APL patterns? If so, why? The reason why I might preder using the APL patterns, because if I understood correctly, my TV might auto dimm the test patterns with some full field test patterns and if it does so, the measurements are incorrect.
I'm using HCFR with the AVS HD 709 disc. The TV I have is a Samsung LE40C530. The colorimeter is X-Rite i1 Display Pro III.
