I have a 40HX850 and was would like to calibrate it. Does anyone know if this TV has a Blue Only mode? I've tried looking for it but, surprisingly (shockingly!), there is no definitive information about whether Sony Bravia TVs have a Blue Only mode.

No, it does not. It doesn't have color or 10 point greyscale either. You do get a great picture with what is there tho.

Bummer! Are there any particular blue filters you recommend?

I used the one that came with the Avia disk, but I found that I got better results making sure that measuring the red and adjusting that using the color control was best. I left hue alone at 0.

I'm new to all of this and from the cursory reading that I have done (Rtings and elsewhere) it looks like it would be possible to get ~90% picture quality with basic calibration settings and without having to use very expensive equipment. I'd be fine with that. I haven't been able to get a blue filter and so the color and so haven't been able to adjust the color or tint settings. At times I find the skin tones too red but am not touching the Advanced White Balance settings as I'd be eye-balling it and don't have the equipment or experience for it.

Could you please share your settings if it is not a hassle?

Sorry, I just replaced it a month ago with a Samsung 4K. I gave it to my son and don't have access to it. Was always very pleased with Sony. I wanted one of their 4K but they were too big for my Entertainment center. Samsung had one that just fit. It also has all the controls. Just leave tint at 0 and adjust skin tone using color. If I remeber, it was 49 or 50.

I know I used the warm2 and movie settings. The other temps were not even close to what you want.Very little adjusting was needed after that.

I am not sure about your specific model. but most HX8** models just do a reset and maybe even a -1 on the blue other wise the
picture has perfect color balance after reset. you might not need to go -1 on some.
this was per home theater web site.
