Hey, guys. Sorry for digging up the thread, but I was wondering if anyone can help me with my questions/concerns or tell me to go make a thread.
So, I just recently realized that my 42LK450 wasn't doing 4:4:4 chroma on my PC (Nvidia card), so I looked up the EDID override fix and did it. During the re-testing and some basic visual "calibration" with the AVS HD patterns again, I noticed that the gamma is apparently off by a decent amount, at least by the standard charts I can find. Just eyeing it, red's around 2.0, green's at 1.8, blue is closer to 2.15, and the gray is around 1.65. This is just using the basic settings (contrast, brightness, color, tint, and color temperature). I've tried setting the gamma on High, but that only drops them by about 0.1.
Is gamma something that can be adjusted any further on this TV with the basic settings? Are those gamma charts like on sites like http://www.lagom.nl/lcd-test/gamma_calibration.php
still applicable to a screen like this? If I want better results than this, would I need to invest in calibration hardware and deal with the various individual settings for the 10-point IRE and all of that, and possibly have to make a color management profile?
