Had some time to spend with the my 65" set,
Used DVE and AVIA and service menu, took about 2.5 - 3 hours because DVE is such a pain to navigate in.
Avia is easier to use for your CMS color decoder settings as does have color patterns that are easy to use with hue/saturation bars for each color. Don't use the color decoder check, rather use the color bars for each filter in the color pattern database. Go back and check the blue filter after finishing with the green and the red.
Calibration Settings in User Mode Input 1
Denon DVD-2900 in 480P using component inputs, upconverted to 1080p using the TV's onboard video scaler.
Dark room, no ambient light.
Primary Purpose: Movie Watching
Contrast +31 Just Below Threshold
Brightness -2 True Black Setting, right bar barely visibile
I set the color saturation on the color bars using COLOR and TINT with the blue filter, then tweaked the blue using the fine CMS adjustments.
Then adjusted the following using both the green filter and red filter, took a lot of going back and forth....
Color decoder with these settings is close to perfect.
There was no red push present.
Overscan was set at nifty 2.5%, pattern was centered.
Active Contrast Off
Fine Motion Off
Color Temp: Low is closest to 6500K
Digital Noise Reduction Off
For daytime television watching, use the same CMS settings for color accuracy, as it does compensate for the slight inaccuracy of the set’s out of the box color decoder. (Nice to have as it used to be that only the higher end sets had this type of user friendly set adjustability without having to go into the service mode.) Color accuracy great for movie watching, but when watching TV, this is probably meaningless, given that TV source material lacks any consistency.
Since you will be likely watching TV in daylight settings with more ambient light, movie calibration settings are typically too dark, so I would increase the brightness on the set from -2 to +6 to +8, or try putting the OPC on to compensate for a lot of ambient light. I also prefer to watch TV using the mid-low color temperature.
Use User Mode for your settings as in this mode, the set's Enhanced Picture Constrast is off. This set has the capability to save User Modes for all inputs. User1, User5, etc.
