What will also be interesting is what color temp you decide to stick with after you find out which is more accurate.
I'm curious too. I'm surrounded by calibrated computer monitors all day at work and the IT group at work calibrated my MBP-retina. The sammy that I've been watching the last few years has been set on it's warm setting all that time and produces a pretty decent looking warm grey. Prior to that, had a professionally calibrated Panny plasma as the main TV. So, I'm pretty used to D65 monitor set points. I work closely with some design folks who have real deal professional proofing tables and light boxes.
I totally agree that Warm 1 is quite blue on the XBR65900A. But Warm 2 on my particular set has got to be way, way off. I'm only eyeballing (indeed inaccurate), but side by side to a known D65 grey scale screen, warm 2 is very green/blue. In order to dial in a white point that is visibly similar, I wind up subtracting a lot of green, which seems to throw off the greyscale steps with visible color shifting across the luminance step bars. I finally gave up on Warm 2, switched to Warm 1 and simply reduced the amount of blue so that side by side, it is comparable to the calibrated MBP Retina screen. It appears to be more consistent across the grey step bars.
I tried your last posted settings and the white balance on my set seems to be quite different. The rest seems good.
My trusty blue filter from my old Avia DVD says the color/hue is likely just about spot on using the AVS forum blue-ray disk I burned. (yeah, I know about blue filters ;-) )
We'll see when I get I-Display Pro 3 pointed at it.
