Turn off all extra processing
select Rec 709 and gamma 2.2 color temp warm
using the AVS disk from spectracals site set Brightness contrast and sharpness, turned on the TV Blue filter and displayed the flashing color pattern and adjusted color and tint.
In CalMan follow Standard Workflow.
I set backlight at about 40 for the cal but in the end it is at 85 in my kitchen
Run the precal check of Color temp, FL output gamma and Gray scale.
Calman was set to a HD Rec709 and a Gamma Target of 2.3 but I will be redoing it with 2.2 for my environment.
Then set Gray scale.
Choose 2 point
Display 100 IRE and Take reading
Display 80 IRE and adjust RGB to 100% even
Dispaly 30 IRE and adjust RGB to 100% even
Choose 10 point
display 100 IRE and read FL in the other scale cmd/nit or something.
Choose 100 IRE on the TV and set luminance to your above light output
(I think this is just informational, shows up in the menu for each IRE.. what Y should be)
Then I ran the complete scale
Don't recall if I started at 100 or 10 but for each IRE
I adjusted RGB so there were at 100% (same as each other) and the calculated Y reading was as close to equal to the Target Y provided by CalMan for that IRE.
Did that for all IRE and had a perfect gray scale and prefect gamma.
As to the luminance setting above.. since gamma on tv was set to 2.2 the numbers it displayed were different than what CalMan displayed since my CalMAn target was 2.3 I think that Luminance setting is just incase the software does not provide the target.
Then I read the gamut using 75% patters as prompted by CalMan.
I do not know if I did anything correct after this.. but here is what I did.
For each of the primary colors I used the CMS color adjustments to get the Luminance differences as close to 0 as possible. Then for the secondary used the tint to get the delta H as low as possible.
I have not recorded the settings yet. Will do that when I fix the gamma since I will have to transfer everything to the other ISF preset (Note the CMS settings do not transfer, just the gray scale and gamma).
