Wondering if I could get a bit of advice on color clipping. First, though, I just want to say thanks for producing this calibration disc! It has helped a lot, and I've learned a lot by using it and reading the articles on your site.
This is on a Samsung PN50C8000 plasma display, with a Samsung blu-ray player (no AVR between).
I've been able to get the contrast, brightness, color, and tint adjusted pretty well using the patterns. I used the display's "blue only" mode with the color bars pattern, and ended up adjusting color from 50 down to 46. But when I use the clipping pattern, I'm getting pretty substantial color clipping, especially in Red. I can bring it back by knocking the contrast and/or color down, but I need to lower them a lot.
Should I just live with some clipping, or is there something else I can do?
The display has color space settings (auto, native, custom). Native seems best - and is described as "wider than source". Auto looks pretty bad - more clipping, and hues seem off to me. I'm afraid I get over my head when I go into the custom menu, even after reading the article on choosing a color space.
Thanks for any advice.
